perpetual mid-day performed at dawn and dusk

In perpetual mid-day performed at dawn and dusk, a single shot of the horizon at mid-day projects onto opposing sides of two dark rooms.  Each dark room projects the sunlight at either dawn or dusk intervals as seen through the film of the horizon at mid-day.  The film repeats the same shot of the horizon at mid-day and revolves around both dark rooms.   The rotation of the film depends on the direction of the wind.

perpetual mid-day performed at dawn and dusk attempts to use the wind and earth’s rotation to make a film.  Viewing the film corresponds with the earth’s rotation and wind direction.  While the film projects passing sunlight, the wind movements become visible with each passing frame.  The visibility of the wind in the film corresponds with its unfelt presence on the skin since the dark rooms shelter the viewer.  The single shot of the horizon at mid-day represents a time of day when no projection of the sun is visible in the dark rooms.
