Mmorse Rigveda X 10, 4-5

(2013, 1:34' loop, HD video, 27" flatscreen, mono)

 

Long and short intervals of a flickering lamp in a Varanasi garage recite in Morse code the Rigveda X, 158, 4-5: "Give sight onto the eye, give thou our bodies sight that they may see: May we survey, discern this world. Thus, Surya, may we look on thee, on thee most lovely to behold."
