Someone is missing. Plants grow, but at what cost? Technology threatens and seduces as humans attempt to solve a mystery through telepathy and mirrors. Stainless steel and broken glass strewn about an intergalactic discotheque. Commissioned by the Chicago Film Archives, with footage and sound from the archive chopped, manipulated and arpeggiated into a fertile mix of anthem and narrative.

Created in collaboration with filmmaker Marianna Milhorat. All footage from CFA, picture edit by Milhorat and score/sound by Kirkbride.

Sky Room was included in the Disasters of Peace programs at Whitechapel Gallery, London and Bienal de Imagen en Movimiento, Buenos Aires.
