TRINITY originated initially as an installation piece, commissioned by the Zentrum fur Kunst und Media in Karlsruhe, Germany. It has been edited for less cumbersome presentation as a film, to be projected from H.264 file HD video. It is meant as an altarpiece, with five screens arrayed horizontally on the screen. The entire work lasts 58 minutes, with a two screen passage initiating the work in the first 7 minutes, which then gives over to a 50 minute passage of a five panel screen. The work is without sound, with the intention that it should be seen in effect as "painting" although temporally it is organized as visual music - to say it has movements, shifts in pace, and a dramatic arc and is intended to be experienced from start to finish. Though generated from a real camera-shot, the material of this work is highly abstract, and is formally composed as a kind of altar piece, in a temporal structure based on Christ's Passion. Sequences represent Gethsemane, Golgotha, the Ressurrection and the Assumption and finally the origins of "let there be light" - the Big Bang. The work is silent and is intended to be received as painting and visual music.

It should be projected BIG as possible for maximum effect, scale is very important.
