Sculptural and sound Installation at The Luminary Center for the Arts (St. Louis, MO)
June 10 - July 22, 2011
"John Early's new site-specific installation, Terra Firma...stems from a recent documentary chronicling the career of BMX rider Mat Hoffman, who has devoted much of the past twenty-five years to launching himself and his bike to unbelievable and unprecedented heights. Using as a frame of reference Hoffman's relentless pursuit to push the bounds of gravity, Terra Firma explores the condition of humankind's earthbound existence and the desire to transcend and push beyond that limit."
