Natalie Bork’s hollow, cylindrical forms hover above the ground at various levels. Each form hangs plumb from a steel cable which enables it to oscillate left and right with the slightest breeze, draft or passerby. Viewers can walk in between the suspended cylinders watching as the forms slowly begin to spin. The child within may inspire the viewer to lay down on the ground and look up at the brightly colored bottom facets of each cylinder and relax as he or she watches them spin from the airflow. The cylinders react to the energy we give off when we walk or run, creating a ripple effect.

We See Heaven Upside Down is a multi-disciplinary exhibition that responds to the challenges concerning mass migration, displacement, and identity in contemporary society. Based on an idea by painter MyLoan Dinh – herself a refugee of the Vietnam War – and a collaboration with artist/educator Lee Baumgarten, the project has since developed into an international  dialogue that seeks to stimulate further discourse and understanding around these issues, inviting collaboration from those with both non-migratory and immigrant or refugee backgrounds.
