The giant radio telescope at the Arecibo Observatory

The arrival at Arecibo. Artech in rotation against the sky, circling concentric the vast aluminum dish set within the surface of the Earth. SETIvision. Aerial view. This crater formed from tiles, each animated with the living sleeve of a record brought back from the outer rim. Light pours through each of them, clockwise from the center and radiating outward.

Reverse the polarity: images and sound project into the heavens, transmissions emitted to the outer rim — spirits returned to their place of origin. Reverse the polarity: reflection received and synced, pulsing in perfect harmony with itself — ringing in resonance as the sub-levels grow deeper and deeper and deeper. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.
