Artist Statement

An Alternate Framework is comprised of a 3D animation involving a simulation of a bigger body of mass rotating around a smaller body of mass (in this case a dwarf star rotating around a tidally locked planet). It presents a situation impossible to known astrophysics - playing off our known understanding of the framework of our Universe. The landscape, reminiscent of the Cartesian-Coordnate system, is a reference to the grid and measurement. It serves as a practical aid for the viewer in order to gauge the level of water as it changes throughout the animation. An Alternate Framework presents a system of impossibility, a reference to the sublime and awe - which comes from the attempt at knowledge at a system that is terrifyingly complex. Sound is composed by fellow artist Erin Gee. It utilizes remixed sounds initially recorded by the Cassini mission amongst other audio recordings of space.
