This widescreen work was inspired by the 'gravitational waves' that are thought to permeate the universe. These theoretical, minuscule ripples in spacetime are being sought by scientists as evidence of a rapid 'Inflation' subsequent to the 'Big Bang' which may explain the even distribution of matter throughout the cosmos.
The film exploits the fractal nature of fluid matter in order to depict a textural waveform that could exist at any scale. The undulating imagery could represent an arm of a spiral galaxy just as easily as it could an underwater volcanic eruption or a strand of DNA inside a brain cell.
This is Foster's fourth work to be made available through Sedition.
