This project emerged on an airplane flight from the Tasmanian mainland to Flinders Island in 2011. After ascending through a whiteout, the cloudscape revealed was surprising, beautiful and uncannily similar to the earth-bound landscape below. The cloudscape now visible looked solid, but having just passed through this turbid space, it seemed impossible to grasp corporeally. How could it be imbued with fear and awe simultaneously? Is distance required in order to fully experience a turbid space?
