As a precursor to The Storm, this video depicts the interior lighting of Toronto condos, hotels, and apartment buildings drifting out of their containing structures into the cityscape. Looking a bit like UFOs, the ‘light boxes’ occupy the skyline of the urban environment before the piece transitions to the relatively rural and berren sky of Iceland. Here, the ominous luminances spread out, and being to organize into vaguely gridlike patterns.
