Eidolon studies the transformative qualities of transient light – reflections of beacon lights, sunset skies, and twilight clouds – in an unstable video file. Like extraterrestrial particles interacting with the Earth’s atmosphere, photons touch and transform the digital image, becoming pixels that flow as light waves through this cinematic painting, illuminating the scene.
