This video work is conceptually inspired by the idea of building a meditative connection and experience with the presence of the sun and it's co-existing role with our planet. The images depicted from this video were captured from a sunrise that took place at the Gulf of Mexico ( between the border of Mexico and the US). In contrast to the moving images, the piece includes original sound composition composed of on-site field recordings, acoustic instruments, electronic sound designs and wav files from NASA (recorded light waves of the sun by a satellite, then transcribed into sound waves).
