Between the grey veil.
Projected on two sides of a screen and suspended above eye level is the crown of a palm tree silhouetted against a sun-setting sky as an airplane moves from up to down. Simultaneously, an audio plays from the ground, with the progressively increasing sound of rain and a gentle voice incrementally suggesting to ‘look at the sun.’
