For me, I see Capricorn as a tale of two worlds, there is the closed-in world of Ally and Sam's troublesome relationship; and the apartment has harboured the trials and tribulations of their relationship. In the confined space, their flaws and insecurities seem magnified, amplifying the arguments that often erupt over the smallest of disagreements. Ally and Sam’s story takes place entirely within their apartment and is seen through the perspective of their pet goldfish Here Fishy Fishy Fishy. Therefore, the design itself is an apartment which is made to resemble a fish tank.
Then we have the world of other people's heartaches. On one channel, lovers quarrel, and relationships unravel before our eyes. Meanwhile, on the news, bizarre incidents unfold with a hint of absurdity—reports of pet goldfish disappearing from their bowls overnight. As we watch these heartaches and peculiar events unfold from the comfort of Sam and Ally’s apartment, we become acutely aware of the shared human experience.
It is a reminder that while our troubles may seem unique and insurmountable within the confines of our personal spaces, the world outside carries its own burdens and oddities. Therefore, the world of other people's heartaches comes in the form of pre-recorded vision content which is displayed on multiple projection surfaces throughout the space.
