LUX consists of a dark room with an abstract single-channel video projection of various mutating color fields. The accompanying rumbling, pulsing soundscape appears to be intrinsic to the vast moving image, and vice versa. Any motion, change, or reorganization of the visual and sonic formations functions as a unified field; any modulations of the video in light and color cause equal modulations in the sound.
