The fear of falling is as old as mankind. Falling is the symmetrical
opposite of flying and and has been pictured according to different
conceptions of weight-of the body which falls to the ground. Falling is
also linked to walking badly, staggering, jumping, getting lost, and
also to failing.In modern and contemporary art, falling has become an
intentional action. An action that involves the artist's body and often
the fate of the image of the work of art.
