Photon Film

Near the surface, a photon makes contact with the lens of an eye, where it is focused on a small spot on the retina. There, it is finally absorbed by a protein inside a cone cell, which sends an electrical signal to the brain and marks the end of the million year journey of a photon from the centre of the sun. The artists have produced a film of the result of physical light experiments, looking at light and interrupting the passage of photons, manipulating their pathways and combining a sound-scape to fully immerse the view in their world. This film offers a new perspective of space, our sun and one of the fundamental elements of life; light.
