My Sky Cuius est solum, eius est usque ad coelum et ad inferos "whoever's is the soil, it is theirs all the way to Heaven and all the way to Hell"
I Own The Sky is W&Z's ongoing multi-faceted exploration of the concept of connectivity through nature, space and ownership. They are producing works under the umbrella title of I Own The Sky. This body of work is formed of several series of skycapes in different media each focussing on a unique element of the subject. I Own The Sky - 5 (My Sky) are miniatures of their skyscapes. Each work is a tiny unique hand coated silver gelatine print, hand coloured with oils and housed in a tiny gilded frame or locket. The miniatures play conceptually with our relationships to space and ownership. In the creation of a ‘piece of sky’ that can be carried around with you, close to heart, encased in precious metal the My Sky miniatures allude to mementos of loved ones and the consequent questions of ownership in that domain, whilst presenting a subtle spatial surrealism.
