“Light Echoes,” created by Aaron Koblin and Ben Tricklebank, features the light of a laser (attached to a train) across various settings.

The video ends with the quote, “Every moment of light & dark is a miracle,” reminding us that everything in our lives, of light and dark, heavy and light, is precious in itself.
