This is a short clip from the digital film installation made by Doug Foster, in collaboration with Simon Birch, for The 14th Factory project which opened in Los Angeles, March, 2017. The Marvel is the final installation in the exhibition. It explores the idea of transformation through a visual interpretation of the eight trigrams that constitute the Later-Heaven BaGua: Wind, Fire, Earth, Lake, Heaven, Water, Mountain and Thunder.

The soundtrack is by Gary Gunn.
