A large screen is filled with a glowing, pulsating, slowly changing sun. This video is composed from more than a thousand photographs of sunrises over Ukraine during the past 30 years. Using a ‘machine learning' process, an artificial intelligence program constructed the sequence from the artist’s collection of images. All of the sunrise photos were taken during the historically significant period from the breakup of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s to the present day. The title takes its name from a ‘tachyon’, a hypothetical particle that travels faster than light.
