Heliocentric uses time-lapse photography and astronomical tracking to plot the sun's trajectory across a series of landscapes. The entire environment feels to pan past the camera whilst the sun stays in the centre of each frame, enabling us to gauge the earth's rotation and orbit around the sun. Shooting into the sun creates many intriguing visual artefacts, for the power of the sun still exceeds what both the human eye and the artificial eye of the camera can bear.
