When approached a large projection of volcanos begins to disintegrate. Simultaneously, illustrations of the poem The Drowned Horse appear on the opposite side of the room. “Far Away, installation” demonstrates our propensity towards ownership and disruption. In this installation, the disruption is represented with the horse paintings around the room and the projected imagery from the poem “The Drowned Horse” by Pablo Antonio Cuandra which warned of invasion of Nicaragua.
