"The Frequency of Space/Time", 3D animation, stereo sound, looping every 32 minutes, 2010

 

The Frequency of Space/Time is a computer animation of an artificial sunrise/sunset with a total eclipse of the sun by the moon occurring at the apex of its position above the horizon. The moon follows a parabolic trajectory while the sun slowly rises and sets over a simulated moving body of water. Total eclipse, known as totality, occurs every 16 minutes in the animation while the whole piece cycles every 32 minutes. I began the idea with the intent of creating an impossible artificial phenomenon in light while re-presenting that experience endlessly to the viewer.
