The video work, intended to be shown as a looped projection, came out of artistic research at the time into the life-energy theories of Wilhelm Reich as well as contemporary online communities based around esoteric beliefs. It was derived from “light/colour healing” videos regularly found on video streaming sites. This work was first exhibited at VISUAL – National Centre for Contemporary Art, Carlow, Ireland.
