Be brave

Brodie Ellis will present a video, sculpture and sound installation. Beautifully abstracted fragments of dozens of rocket launches are blended together in a fluid animation that focuses on jet propulsion and the burning of resources. The sculptural components reference design elements of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy, the most powerful operational rocket in the world, which holds contracts with the U.S defence force. Ellis' work will distil the vessel to its essence through rendering in white clay, pine, linen and paper.
