Description du catalogue The mixed media installation consists a loom drum with a screen and a chair at a distance. An installation piece that produces a rhythm of light flashes that demonstrates the frequency and magnitude of 5,500 earthquakes measuring 4.0 or more on the Richter scale recorded in North America from January 1960 to January 1989 in a 15 minute-cycle, on a blank, circular and concave screen. On the other side of the screen, the same light flashes are superimposed on a map of North America indicating their precise location in space and time of these plate-tectonic structures.
