We are now using the design process to displace the work from its natural setting into an urban context. The video parallels this shifting with multiple organic textures that are ever changing. These slight movements of earth are real, yet when transformed into an illuminating image in the night they become suppressed into a dream. This transubstantiation of matter functions as the solidifier of the work's shift into a new form.
