Sol. Spirituality for the digital age. A move towards a more cosmic future. A hopeful call to arms for a more inclusive, liberated culture where the impermanence of life can wash over us in a wave of ambient sonic splendor. Using solar energy to create shifting ambient soundscape Sol is an immersive, interactive civic space for all lifeforms of all persuasions. A reintrepretation of the Shinto shrine for the digital age. An alliance between codified physical computing, emerging interactive technology and the ancient spiritual traditions of the East. Non denominational, non religious wholly universal. Where all beings can remember their cosmic core, their common primordial source, where everything is united through the vibrational properties of sound and light. This is the common link. Vibrational force. Sun to light, light to sound and back again. The great circle of vibrational energy. A place where your presence creates the experience. A reminder that we create our own reality. Awareness of this is the great liberator. Sol the tool.
