Fly Tower

the Fly finds its Being in Roundness (FlyTower)

Installation of a ceiling divider in an unused grain silo; Heavily infested with flies, the ground floor of this tower was converted into a viewing area to witness the trapping and teasing of the infestation.

Over a 3 week period, plastic sheeting created a barrier between the viewer and swarms of flies which flourished at the very top of the room. As the flies’ life cycle completed, they would drop and collect in masses on the plastic sheeting. A constant buzz echoed in the space, which was also emphasized by the plastic material.
