•Ishan Project: 199/166•
During the Autumnal Equinox, the very center of the Sun sets just 12 hours after it rises. It’s quite beautiful because the day begins when the upper edge of the Sun reaches the horizon (which happens a little before the center rises), and it doesn’t end until the entire Sun has set. In fact, the Sun is visible when it is below the horizon, as the Earth’s atmosphere refracts the Sun’s rays and bends them in an arc over the horizon. This arc sparks an electromagnetic pulse with the Ishan.
Many Ishan weave their branches into patterns close to their bodies harnessing energy as some of their flowers’ become dormant this time of the year. However the style in each of their eclectic patterns show their own unique authenticity.
