Laboratory of Sunset
In the laboratory of sunset, the scenographical experience of watching the sunset on the beach of Cape Town is repeated over and over again. The sunset, as a fiery red orb of light slowly sinks beneath the horizon, and threads of light linger in the sky, mingling with the rolling clouds, dyeing the heavens first orange then red, then dark blue, until all that is left of the sunset is just a chalky mauve, and then that melts away in turn as stygian darkness takes over the sky. Gradually, the warmth of sunlight appears again. It touches our skin and soul. The sky becomes brighter and brighter, warmer and warmer. The comforting circle of light.
