Aleph

 

It emits a blinding, yet cleansing light - a single point in space. The Aleph is a peephole into the entire universe, revealing every angle simultaneously without overlap or confusion. It is brief moment of clarity.

This physical manifestation of the Aleph was used as a prop for the touring dance performance Birds Sing a Pretty Song. A piece about isolation and manipulation, BSAPS comments on technology's dominating influence over our daily lives. The Aleph allowed the controlled performer to see the underlying structure and break free from the mainframe.
