ā€œIn all known planetary systems, natural satellites occur in a restricted dynamical phase space: planets orbit stars and moons orbit planets. It is natural to ask, can moons have their own stable satellites, can a moon have its own sub-moon? ā€œ

Every moon reveals so its own orbit, 7 moons upon the sunrise, painting a journey from the past to the future. Moon phases inspire the cosmogony of a luminous landscape, constellations open to the skies, revealing a ciclic timing, an immersive frame leading the path to totality: a choral piece to celebrate the flow of time.
By a computational algorithm, the digital canvas renew itself over time, opening up to a landscape of flowing colours and tones. A sonic sequencing is reinforced by the crystalline and faceted forms of the structure. Harmonics and sonic temperament meets the chromatic language, unfolding the patterns of a motion painting which takes a lifeforms in the shape of a luminous sculpture. 

A successful combination of aural storytelling with optical pictography; shapes and motifs evolve into digital data patterns, opening to a bright and tuneful visual experience and casting a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Harmonics and Temperament meets the chromatic language, unfolding the patterns of a motion painting which takes a lifeforms in the shape of a luminous sculpture.

In the search for time, the circle of the planets moving to the zenit, from dusk till dawn; any difference disappears through the blossom, thus revealing the birth of a new cycle of life.
