    The Horizon by Maja Cule is a reconstruction of a classic film trope wherein the lead character, in a state of crisis, is drawn into a struggle on the roof of a skyscraper. The action scene, and accompanying fall, is often depicted in two frames: the first frame shows the hero desperately grasping at the roof’s edge and the second frame shows the distance to the ground, symbolizing the character’s demise. In The Horizon, a model is caught in an infinite loop, hanging off the edge of The Trump Building located at 40 Wall Street which serves as a reference to the global liquidity crisis.
