Both Aviatrix and Emergency Exits were large-scale installations where participants sat at a displaced cockpit that controlled an interactive "black box" narrative via web site.
Point of Departure, documents the two installations and allows one to navigate a version of the site that was used in the works. Its prelude activates images of two grown men playing the childhood balancing game of airplane in their underwear. Participants meander through manipulated airplane diagrams and manuals situating a vehicle of flight as a potential metaphor for domestic struggle and the crash as an opportunity to rethink kindred relations.
