“The Longtime Sun” is a program of works pulled from video-sharing websites, online databases, artists’ videos, and stock footage selected for their recurring, psychedelic, and circular narratives, and shared traits with eastern-inspired philosophies, ambient music, experimental cinema, and noise music. Selected videos refer to transformative, evolving, dissolving, and emergent processes and include: clips of icebergs flipping or rolling over, hermit crabs changing shells, submarines breaking through Arctic ice, interspecies friends, backyard science experiments, cat-jump fails, dogs chasing tails, people partying on boats, field recordings, volcanoes, etc.
