Aurorasis is the second collaborative video/sound installation of Angie Drakopoulos and Daniel Hill. As both artists are also painters, each brought elements from their painting disciplines into the work, such as interests in symmetry, pattern, cycles, and nature. These elements are portrayed both directly from the painting (with the animation) or by modifying video of natural phenomena (water, trees, stars). The result is a densely layered tapestry of meditative, pulsing light, form, and structure intertwined with the sound of floating overtones.
Aurorasis is a word constructed by the artists: aur is latin for ear or gold and orasis is greek for vision.
