The view is more beautiful from above is a recording of a performance realized in real time. Martin balances on the edge, the borderline state between life and death, and subjects the viewer to the torture of fearing for her life. The piece was created while Martin reflected on theories of being. The artist rejects the idea of a world order based on an organized system – for example a religious system, which she sees as obsolete and empty – in favour of developing her own world view – a closer consideration of nature and its rules, questioning the primacy of man and testing to what extent she is the agent of her own fate.
