A hand is moving across a reflecting surface, its fingers are pointing, stretched out and laid flat on the surface. The reflection and shadow that is caused by the hand and two fingers resembles a mountain with creases and dimples. In Moving Light the camera records a hand as it slowly moves. Through that movement, the fall of light changes and shadows shift. At the end of the video the magic is revealed, we see the artist with her arms folded around a piece of white paper as she covers her face and the rest of her body.
