Inspired by the event that led Brion Gysin to build the Dream Machine in 1960.The video is of light flickering rapidly through trees, recordings from different transport means in and around Copenhagen.The video continues in a endless loop with 1 sec. clips and with the blinding from the sun revealing optical artifact.
“Had a transcendental storm of colour visions today in the bus going to
Marseilles. We ran through a long avenue of trees and I closed my eyes against
the setting sun. An overwhelming flood of intensely bright colors exploded
behind my eyelids: a multidimensional kaleidoscope whirling out through space.
I was swept out of time. I was out in a world of infinite number. The vision
stopped abruptly as we left the trees. Was that a vision? What happened to me?”
