A Thousand Miles An Hour refers to the speed at which the Earth rotates on its axis. By mounting the camera to an astronomical tracking system, the videos question how our normal visual experience of our most influential celestial bodies – the sun and the moon – may differ from our scientific knowledge of their physical properties. The two synchronized 24 minute channels present familiar views of the skies, yet the sun and the moon remain as constant points near the center of the frame. As the light subtly shifts from dawn to dusk, the clouds, the horizon, and even the earth itself appear in motion relative to these distant objects in the sky.
