The films recreate the formation of a light effect that arose unpredictably on the surface of an airplane window during a flight at 8,000 - 12,000 kilometers above sea level and at an average speed of 724 km, with an average outside temperature of - 54 degrees. 
The work presents an unforeseen effect, not linked to human production, adressing the encounter with unexpected images that do not reveal their mechanism, the reasons that make them occur. The ephemeral nature of the light effect, the impossibility to preserved it or fully visually captured it suggests a mental space devoid of practical justifications and purposes. At the work the recreation, serialization and insistent reproducction of the light emphasises the value of preserving the anonymous, the unthinkable and imperceptible. Echoing the desire of leaving the material world behind the light effect personifies the notion of an infinite liveless cosmic organism, devoid of origin.

Artsit: Cytter (US), Mónica Ferreras De la Maza (DR), Mayer\Leyva (Lucas Leyva and Jillian Mayer) (US), Emanuel Röhss (SWE), Julia Varela (SP/ARG). Curator: Jeremy Gales (AU).
'Cortright selected an early green screen video that explores elements of the human condition within the digital sphere. Keeping with the post-net trajectory, Miami artist and writer duo Mayer\Leyva introduce questions of viewership and autonomy. Varela’s selection both harnesses and grapples with the temporal constraints and ephemeral properties of the moving image faced when working from an aircraft. Cytter’s anti-natural and theatre-styled Object screens a multiplicity of themes that range from love and entropy to wicked games. Röhss’s video is an extension of his ongoing Ennis House project, while Ferreras De la Maza employs a time based work which retrospectively and insightfully views a diary kept on residence in Shanghai'.
