The Sunset Archive project presents a video titled Galaxy View by artist Juan Requena. The video was shot in the first-person perspective, collecting sunset scenes for years at a beach in Mumbai, India. The artist placed a camera on a small remote-controlled car and monitored it at Bandra West, Mumbai, documenting the sunset. While enjoying the view from far, the video also walks us through piles of garbage and encounters with wild animals at the beach, providing the audience multi-perspective views and thoughts on environmental issues, urban lifestyles, mental stability, and more. In the artist’s words “The video pays homage to the lush but fragile, threatened natural resources of this region.”
