Altered Seas, Altered States is a circular video project that provides a portal to the changing seas around us. Images of pristine shores and vibrant cascades are altered by color shifts that hint at the synesthesia of composer Alexander Scriabin, whose Sonata #5 undergirds the imagery. Spherical distortions embedded in the circular form nod to the dysphoric state of our climate, while human shadows hint at the hopeful reach of a new generation. First created for a live concert in a small planetarium with pianist Lauri Young, this traveling version may also be projected on a wall (a port-hole onto the sea) with embedded sound.
