Decomposing the Light (2008)

Stereo Audiovisual –


“I open my eyes to the light, and see at first only a maze of light and colour. I touch, I move forwards, I touch again, and as I look the chaos insensibly clears. Touch in some way decomposes the light, separates the colours, distributes among the objects, and detatches a clear space. Touch opens before my eyes a certain distance, and shows them the way by which they may look over the far earth, and rise even to the heavens above. Touch unfurls for them the universe.”
