Nocturne

November, 2015

I used to watch the sun rise from the mountain’s side in Lebanon, and set behind the Mediterranean sea, creating a twilight of colors in the horizon. In Providence, the horizon is different. The sun sets from the land side and I was unable to watch the sky and the sea marry to become one at dusk. I then created Nocturne, a single serve website translating the sensory and visual experience of the sunrise and the sunset. When scrolling down, the moon appears as the sky becomes darker with the tunes of Chopin’s Nocturne. When scrolling up, a reversed version of the track plays as the moon disappears and the sun rises again, re-creating a narrative of classical music that depicts a sunrise. ‘Nocturne’ and ‘diurne’ are separated by a infinite line, an exchange and a hand-over. The sun and the moon never meet, but their co-existence lives in the horizon, an infrathin horizon. Professor: Clement Valla
