A Phrase from "Illumination" (2011)

The image sequence for A Phrase from “Illumination” is a meditation on water and light, two elements that Bill Viola has used extensively in his work. Pieces such as The Crossing (1996), Five Angels for the Millennium (2001), and The World of Appearances (2000), are all large-scale works that depict our relationship to water that represents the cycles of life-birth, death and resurrection.
