Summary
The Japanese consider the first dream (hatsu yume) of the new year, to be especially portentous. Bill Viola is a video artist concerned with the mystical aspects of physics and optical transformations. Here he plays with perspective and time, making connections between the flow of light and the flow of water. He shows us the cycle of a day that begins in light and ends in light illuminating the darkness, a cycle that metaphorically symbolizes the cycle of time and creation. "A spiritual allegory equating light and dark with life and death. It was produced in Japan while Viola was artist-in-residence at the Sony Corporation. There are two interwovern themes: the dark water world of fish and Buddhist rituals invoking the souls of dead ancestors. It is a work of extravagant pictorial beauty, at once ominous, majestic, spiritual and mystical."--Contemporary Arts Media
