Fleisch exposed thousands of sheets of photographic paper to an uncontrolled discharge of 30.000 volts sent through a cathode tube. The exposures were then rearranged to produce a chronological progression, suggesting a narrative of radiation emanating from a celestial body, possibly the sun. Jens Thiele provides a soothing but intense drone soundtrack, potentiating the effect of this powerful stroboscopic flicker excursion into the heart of the body electric. -- Eye of Sound
