Brakhage's written description of this film suggests a connection between the projector beam and the sun, and early time-lapse shots of the interior of the Brakhage home in which the light shifts as the sun moves across the sky direct the viewerto attend to the direction from which light enters the frame in every image. The editing also emphasizes that: images of daily life in the Brakhage household are intercut with an eye toward shifting sun directions. It´s not that the sun is in every image, but having been made aware of the light source in most frames -including in the opening image of the moon, visible to us mostly through reflected sunlight- the viewer now thinks about the sources of all the light, even the scant illumination of shadow figures in sunless interiors. A time-lapse shot of a room with complex, changing shadow patterns is followed by a darker interior in which a child walks a slightly irregular path, linking light poetry to the "dance" of human movement.
