Through nature’s own materials – earth and grass – the work "Towards the Sky" opens up towards the heavens. The outcrop of earth rests calmly against the shell of the planet. The conical grass-covered rise is ripped apart – in a desire to communicate through the boundless universe. Preminger wants to make the universal essence of creation more tangible, to let the intangible take physical form. She sees our planet as a living being that can feel and make contact with other elements in the cosmos. The vegetation is the planet’s skin and the Earth its flesh. The Earth opens up to create dialogue with the heavens. Just next door, the St. Nicholas steeple sends out its signals.
