Notes

  • Program notes: 

    In general relativity, an event horizon is a boundary i spacetime, most often an area surrounding a black hole, beyond which events cannot affect an outside observer. I have imagined the infinite gravity from which nothing, not even light, can escape. It fuses everything into a single huge mass in the universe, a wondrous vitality of the enormous power which became the source of inspiration for this work.
