(Back to Art on the Grounds)

This triptych projection located on Montalvo’s Box Office Pavilion colonnade features four audio/video animations from the artist’s Light and Language series: Clouds, Anahata, Nam-Myoho-Renga-Kyo and Between Worlds. In 2013, Munro began incorporating the communication system of Morse code into his work in the form of dots and dashes of light, allowing him to embed words, equations, and phrases. The animations on view draw on diverse themes, including Buddhism and other ancient meditation practices. Between Worlds, which is generated using the equation for photosynthesis, is the most overtly connected to the stories of Narnia.
