Rising Sun is a large scale light and sound installation that comes to life as the real sun sets.
Using highly reflective materials, search lights and multichannel surround sound, the piece conveys the unbridled power of nuclear fusion taking place at the heart of the sun.
Designed in collaboration with artist William Simpson, Rising Sun was made by Polysemic at Machines Room in London.
