THE SUN DROPS ITS TORCH is
an abstract, multi-lingual portrait of the Earth from the outside in and the
inside out. Explosive, natural, beautiful yet sometimes threatening events put
life into perspective as an active volcanic lava flow and a total solar eclipse
conjunct in space during a frozen moment in time. Personal stories, ancient
mythology and current folklore surrounding these events, human form and dance
juxtapose these elements in an interactive experience.
One may navigate around a composited image to explore quick-time video of the events, composited stills and computer graphics, human form and spoken relevant multi-lingual stories.
The source material for THE SUN DROPS ITS TORCH INTERACTIVE CD is taken from original footage shot on location in Hawaii, July 1991, by JoAnn Gillerman and Rob Terry.
