The lives of invisible magnetic fields are revealed as chaotic ever-changing geometries . All action takes place around NASA's Space Sciences Laboratories, UC Berkeley, to recordings of space scientists describing their discoveries . Actual VLF audio recordings control the evolution of the fields, revealing recurrent ‘whistlers' produced by fleeting electrons.
The creators, Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt of Semiconductor, ask: are we observing a series of scientific experiments, the universe in flux, or a documentary of a fictional world?.
Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt were artists-in-residence at SSL. Combining their in-house lab culture experience with formidable artistic instincts in sound, animation and programming, they have created a magnetic magnum opus in nuce, a tour de force of equisite beauty of a massive invisible force brought down to human scale.

Is Earth Losing Its Magnetic Field?
"An open question in science is whether the Earth is starting a magnetic shift of the poles. If so, we may have hundreds of years during the transition where we are "shields down", unprotected from sun storms and cosmic rays. On average, around every 250,000 years the Earth undergoes a magnetic field reversal, i.e., the poles are reversed. The evidence from analyzing the iron record in the baking of clay pots from prehistory to modern times, suggests we are long overdue for a shift, since the last magnetic shift apparently happened around 750,000 years ago.
