100,000 light years is one trip across the galaxy.
The proton of a hydrogen atom is 100,000 times smaller than the atom itself.
At a scale less than 1000 times smaller than a hydrogen atom’s proton, space-time is effervescent like a foamy tide.

The navigator traces their course on the vast expanse of an infinitesimally tiny ocean. Confined by silent shores, they sail on a ship made of light. They steer the ship by listening to the winds Transdimensional waves and anti-waves alter the course. With precision, the navigator maps uncertain paths across fleeting Planck lengths.


This version of The Navigator was created and filmed at the Totem Électrique IX, Montreal – Quebec, June 3rd 2017.
