The sun was born in darkness, to shine for a time, only to return to darkness

Reconfigured rotary slide projector, high intensity bulb, parabolic reflector, aspherical lens, black slides. Dimensions Variable. Unique.

A performance-based sculptural work. 100 processed unexposed transparency slides run continuously through the projector. Light (and heat) from the bulb, constrained by the parabolic reflector and focused down to a hot point of light at the film plane of the slides by the aspherical lens, cause the black slides to eventually burn though. A birthing of successive suns.
