Heated unstable air creates a shimmer by variations in passages of light. We call this a mirage or heat shimmer. I have an interest in 'non orderliness' or 'out of system' which is created by heat. The nature of this randomness, when we see it through air, is quite beautiful.
This piece produces visible and audible phenomena from a heat shimmer, providing a beautiful experience and insight into the randomness of nature world.
