The lives of invisible magnetic fields are revealed as chaotic ever-changing geometries . All action takes place around NASA's Space Sciences Laboratories, UC Berkeley, to recordings of space scientists describing their discoveries . Actual VLF audio recordings control the evolution of the fields, revealing recurrent ‘whistlers' produced by fleeting electrons.
The creators, Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt of Semiconductor, ask: are we observing a series of scientific experiments, the universe in flux, or a documentary of a fictional world?.
Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt were artists-in-residence at SSL. Combining their in-house lab culture experience with formidable artistic instincts in sound, animation and programming, they have created a magnetic magnum opus in nuce, a tour de force of equisite beauty of a massive invisible force brought down to human scale.
