a 'displaced architectural space' which is out of sync both temporally & climatically. this large screen, composed of 300 150W infrared light bulbs, transposes the real-time state of the summer sun on the 23rd South parallel. the light bulbs diffuse a light & heat video sequence of the sun between 600 & 1000nm, according to the actual climatic conditions of the tropic of Capricorn.
each time the diffused sun gets out of the camera field, the system seeks a new active sun in another place & in a different time zone. the image of this active sun, diffused by the 300 infra-red lamps, heats the space located in front of it.
