In an industrial setting, illuminated pictorial spaces are created that oscillate between a making-of aesthetic, harbor scenes, and celestial spheres. The action depicts a port as a place in changing perspectives. The city becomes a galaxy, ships transform into spaceships, the sun becomes an eyeball, a fish and splits into two courses of action, which can also be seen in parallel in the double projection (Double Sun). The image creation is also space and time creation at the same time. The electric illumination changes into a cosmic glow. The plot shows a cycle of emergence and decline.

The character K marks the geographical point of view (place of production, the port city of Klaipėda), the number 7392 indicates the number of tea lights and thus the amount of light.

EQUINOX K-7392 was created in close collaboration with Lithuanian composer and sound artist Donatas Bielkauskas (Donis). The production sounds, sound of the harbor were recorded on site and turned into a piece of music composed especially for the project.
