A meditation on green light - inspired by the dense horizon of lights found on the top of cityscapes. Specifically the red blinking lights for warning aircrafts which have always felt to me like some kind of living, breathing ecosystem. Continuing my fascination with geographies constructed or revealed by light during the night, I started thinking more about the “breathing” lights as rhythms. This lead to a collaboration with Icelandic musician Bix Sigurdsson, who created the soundscape.
One of the wide shots is based on one of the very few nighttime satellite images NASA has available, of Tokyo. The other is an homage to an installation by Gyorgy Kepes for KLM in 1959, described as the “poetry of a cityscape as seen from an airplane at night.”
