A ceiling of an abandoned chapel is covered with posters of clouds. A reference to the ceiling paintings in historic churches is mixed with an invitation to project fantasy and dreams on the “repetitive” and “blank” image of a sky. How we perceive our place on the earth is subject to history, belief and observation as well as measurement. Belief that the earth was flat persisted in many cultures, and metaphorically, has come to represent more utopian ideals in the networked, globalized world. Bridging the times that lie between the digital present and the past, The earth is flat. questions our current perspective on standards that are available in contemporary society.
