Installation Art at the grand finale of the All Souls Procession in Tucson commemorating its 20th anniversary. A total solar eclipse lasts approximately five minutes. The Chau Gong reverberates for total of four minutes, at which point the immediate termination of ringing becomes undetectable; the time between the end of sound and the beginning of silence becomes indistinguishable. This period is the void; consciousness transcending the boundaries of time. In essence the work is a tool to assist meditation practice.
