Landing on Earth by Kris Ruhs documents the environmental exhibition by Kris Ruhs that inhabitated the Wapping Space in London during the London Design Festival in 2012. The entry installation was an 11 meter by 4.5 meter veil of metal through which shards of light and space can be seen. This visual separation shattered the unity of the Boiler house’s volume and allowed the audience to carve out what he might see. The second installation, in the center, was a series of 240 raku ceramic trees illuminated and suspended from the ceiling. Sitting below it, lied the “bowl of heaven”, a highly polished rotating seat that allows the visitor to spin around, looking up or down into the suspended forest.
