Landing Machine addresses our inquisitive psychological impulse – it is also a symbolic gesture of a return. It derives from the psychological cornerstone of our collective unconscious. On the other hand, it’s also a commanding height occupied by capital and politics, which are other expressions of violence. The direction and focused aim of the arrow is exactly to push our inertia towards a critical point. Reaching this critical point we can expect to return to a new value system. In essence, the work is critical towards violent occupation, the doubt to desire a subject and the subversion to current universal modes of experience.
