For millennia we have looked to the Sun for our survival. In our attempts to increase the productivity of each hour of light, we have skewed our days and stretched them through the use of candles, electricity, LED bulbs, and further subjected ourselves to unnatural light through screens and electronic devices. We have lost our respect for the Sun. Instinctually we know that natural light is vital to our physical and mental health. It sustains us and without we would not survive and yet we ignore this, with most of our lives geared towards a manufactured environment. ‘Stories of the Sun’ offers reconnection with this primal life force through folklore, exploration of ancient cultures, myths, legends and tales of our past. By understanding the power of our ancient star through the wisdom of our ancestors, we can hope to unplug ourselves from the synthetic glow that surrounds our lives.
