Floating Island & Ferris Wheel
This piece is titled “The Floating Island.” What this piece represents is a loss of ambition. One of the biggest inspirations for this piece was the Windmill Island from Gorillaz and like the Windmill Island, it is being steered away and is decaying away slowly.
I watched a Ferris wheel spin at night
Watched as the lights flickered and danced
As people kissed at the tallest height
I watched carnival bubbles float in a hypnotic trance
I watched as the seashore came crashing in slowly
And watched as a man jump off the Ferris wheel boldly
Smashing his head against the pavement
That’s when I woke up and screamed.
