Reflecting on megalithic stone circles, coloured filters are derived from the geological composition of the site and the orientation of the sculptures are aligned to the horizon, so as to reveal the light of the place corresponding to geo-cosmic cycles - its 'spectral fingerprint'. Informed by a series of light studies with natural sunlight interfaced by prisms and optical filters, the spectral fingerprint of a place deals with its deep time - the light of its geological and cosmological past, interfaced by elemental media that shape the now. Now-ness is an interactivity.
The event experienced and the visualisations (the coloured photisms) are synchronic and mutually verify each other, because they take part at the same time as the opening of the organs of light (the suprasensory senses) of the subtle physiology - Corbin
