Trinity is a contemplation on the origins of the Atomic Age. The title comes from the code name of the first nuclear weapons test. The projection consists of three images depicting multiple time scales and orders of physical magnitude. The soundtrack is digitally processed recording of hymns from the final church service of the day in the Christian tradition of canonical hours. The work debuted at ohrenhoch der Geräuschladen, Berlin, Germany.
