The progressive pixelation from top to bottom in the sand is representative of our desire and practice simultaneously of magnification and abstraction of patterns and relationships.
The sun rising above the mountain is homage to the primal source of energy that has fed Earth's biological evolution (and complexification) since the dawn of life, an acknowledgment of the blessing of endless nourishment bestowed into our physical existence daily. Simultaneously the halo of light around the sun is reminiscent of this area's atomic heritage and serves as a reminder of the power and responsibility that comes with creation and manipulation of our world as scientists and engineers.
