To Extinguish The Sun

To Extinguish The Sun, 2020

hand-drawn pencil animation, projection on drawing paper, 4 minutes 25 second, continuous loop, dimensions variable,  edition of 3

To Extinguish The Sun depicts an abstracted celestial sky scape that fluctuates through numerous environmental changes. The many drawings were exposed to light, water, fire, puncturing and generalized destruction creating a flickering jump shot effect. The accompanying otherworldly soundtrack is of wind blowing on the planet Mars. It is the very first sound recorded on Mars by NASA in November 2019.
