The End is a multichannel video installation documenting one collective action, an homage to the heliocentric model of our solar system championed by Galileo Galilei, father of modern cosmology. Over the course of months, Galvani coordinated with local cameramen to film the sunrise along the eastern coastline of five different countries in Central America. On January 8th, the anniversary of Galileo’s death in 1642, the event was filmed in over 30 different locations simultaneously. The resulting video installation juxtaposes a multiplicity of perspectives, expanding the horizon into a unified visual field. (May 16 – June 27, 2015)
