In collaboration with an evolutionary biologist, Aarthi Devi, an experiment was conducted using C. elegans, a nematodal worm who responds to light. A video shot on a microscopic camera shows the worms gathering in the shadows of figures posed in Surya Namaskar, the welcoming of the sun. The video is installed in a large sculpture based on the Wheel of Konark at the Konark Sun Temple in India.
