Through subtle use of layering and time manipulation, digital video from a tour of a suburban waste water treatment plant is pushed into three dimensional space and transformed into a disorienting visual journey that manages to recall both the far reaches of the cosmos and the behavior patterns of single-celled organisms. All of these images have been meticulously altered through frame by frame digital manipulation, beginning as videos of sewage being processed.

Ryan Maguire's soundtrack traveled a similar transformative path, beginning as field recordings from an industrial heating plant before being reimagined as an ethereal aural accompaniment.
