Rebeca is the first artist-in-residence of Glow, an all-night arts event in Santa Monica beach, on September 28, 2013, 7pm and 3am. She will be showing CircumSolar, Migration 1, a new video art installation. The work is a 30-minute, single-channel video projection onto a 25-feet diameter screen, raised above the sand on a circular truss. The content of the film focuses on migration and is based on the arctic tern, a very small sea bird that has the longest migration of all living beings on earth, flying from the Arctic to the Antarctic and back again each year. Interviews on each one of the 14 artists featured: KCRW-GLOW

Rebeca and Adam have been invited to the Nes Artist Residency. Research will focus on their current project Circum/bi/polar—a long-term, transdisciplinary and multimedial project that follows the flight of a small bird, the Arctic Tern (Sterna Paradisaea), on its annual migration from the Arctic to the Antarctic and back again; a 45,000 mile journey that is the longest migration travel on earth of all living beings. Documenting the arctic tern during their nesting season will be a focus during the Nes Residency.
