The Body Of Light
Single-channel Video & Installation

This is the foundation of The Omen Project. Following the 'Trinity' nuclear test at the Alamogordo test range in New Mexico J Robert Oppenheimer remarked on this momentous occasion quoting the Bhagavad-Gita saying, "I have become death, destroyer of worlds" and the world would never be the same again as humanity gained the power to destroy the world. The Body Of Light is the alpha and the omega of The Omen Project.
