Instead of mimicking a physical phenomenon, we attempt to portray an ephemeral moment. For example, in long exposure photos, trailing lights capture the essence of movement of the vehicles. Photography also manages to capture the instant of vector motion of natural phenomena such as lightning, aurora, gas clouds and murmuration. Nature, when placed in the infinite time scale of the earth, carves lines of movement such as rivers, glaciers and fault lines. As such, the human heartbeat is represented universally with a pulsating line on an electrocardiogram.
In all the left mentioned phenomena, the instance of directional movement gives meaning and definition to life as we know it.
The installation can be experienced from the boat and walking along the banks. It is a uniquely long stretch of artwork spanning installed on the edge of the water and the bank. When viewed from the opposite shore, viewers can discern a long pure streak of light dancing and pulsating against the city backdrop and reflected on the rippling waters.
