In this work, video artist Bill Viola explores inner states and humanity's connection to animal consciousness. Combining slow-moving images with natural sound, Viola gives us a view of the natural world and our place in it. The images for this video work were gathered by Viloa and Kira Perov over a period of two years. In the course of their travels they spent several weeks with a freely roaming herd of buffalo in Wind Cave National Park, South Dakota, recorded a time-lapse sequence beside a glacial lake in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, and attended a week-long firewalking ritual at a Hindu Temple on the island of Fiji. During this time, Bill Viola was also artist-in-residence at the San Diego Zoo.
