The Sun’s Traveling As a dream, the screen technology transmits the sun. The transmission of light over great distances evokes a memory of the first moment the sun enters our lives. This warmth resides within us forever. The video consists of transmitting a video of sunlight through another video filmed during twilight in Nevelsfjord. The clay bowl used in this work contains writing from texts originating from The Epic of Gilgamesh (the sun within you). The four sections drawn represent stages of a revelation, or rotation around the sun.
