  • Using footage of water, mostly shot in an industrial wastewater treatment plant in Egypt, Sun Outage re-enacts the setup of a satellite communication system indoors. It draws on imagery from satellite dishes over the roofs of Cairo and water lilies in the Nile as seen from underwater. In the language of satellite communication systems, a sun outage is an interruption or distortion in satellite signals caused by interference from solar radiation.
