The Sun’s Traveling
As a dream, the screen technology transmits the sun. The process of solar transmission evokes a memory of the first moment we see sun in our life. The warm sunlight resides within us forever. The video consists of transmitting sunlight through a video. The clay bowl used in this work contains writing from texts originating from The Epic of Gilgamesh (the sun within you). The texts and container return the memory to the sun within; even in darkness, this light remains. The four sections drawn represent stages of the idea, or revelation, of this project from idea to certain, to implementation. The performed ritual represents the process of transmitting light.
