Artists David Henckel and Dan Wilkinson’s latest project has taken the UK by storm. Their 30-minute film and visual art installation “The Sun at Night” uses NASA imagery to portray a year in the life of the sun. A spherical projection of the rotating star set to ambient, foreboding music is equal parts science and art, and the film (shown exclusively at night) manages to be both beautiful and eerie. The installation began in Preston before reaching millions on the BBC and later drawing crowds in London.
