The Fall of Communism is a video initially made for the Whitney Independent Study Programme in New York. The work is a body falling into a hole into the ground and transforming into different people, expressed as remembered moments of different lives, as it falls deeper in towards the centre of the earth, but based very loosely on the life of Whitney Houston — her famous long notes become the cry of someone falling.
