A 32-unit Pixel Box wall with cinemascope proportions plays a two-part, 13-minute and 12-second looped color sequence.  The first half of the sequence is ‘pixelated’ video footage shot at The Artist’s Palette in Death Valley, the second is based on the rotated cosmological horizon lines in the psychedelic ‘Stargate’ Scene in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968).
