Sweet Light

1977, 9:08 min, color, sound

Using a camera moving along a predetermined path to create the effect of a simulated zoom, Sweet Light refers to the seduction of illumination, focusing on the phototropic vision of a moth. Writes Viola, "A moth emerges from a discarded letter as the spirit of a dead thought and — after an attempted flight to freedom — an individual appears, is inexorably drawn into the source of light, and consumed."
