With sunrise beginning in the UK 3 hours earlier, two people commit to synchronize their geographical positions as movement takes between the horizons.
A lightbridge is formed by capturing two framed landscapes, observing the change of lights and sounds subtly revealed by the cameras that attempt to point to one another across the ocean. Filming began at astronal twilight,at 4:54am in the sleepy seaside town of Selsey on the West Sussex Coast of England, and endied at Sunrise, at 5:47am in the fervent city of Rio de Janeiro.
