“But what am I going to see?
I don’t know. In a certain sense, it depends on you.” ― Stanisław Lem, Solaris

“We take off into the cosmos, ready for anything: for solitude, for hardship, for exhaustion, death. ― Stanisław Lem, Solaris

It is a sign of wind when it is broken up because its breaking up is due to a wind which exists there but has not reached us. ― Aristotle, Metereology

A landscape made of steel mobile structures projecting light halos from 2000, 3500 to 5000 kelvin. Sounds from this atmosphere fill in the room composed by recordings of the magnetosphere and northern winds blowing and interacting with the ruins from the Spitsbergen. The two movements of the sound composition Before Landing and After Departing mark two spatial-temporalities with sounds from the metallic ruins on the ground and sounds from the electromagnetic field of planet earth.
Parhelia is a new land, an in-between territory, between land and space, arrival and departure, documentation and fiction, an unknown no man’s land, and a known territory, a possibility to linger.
