This is an abstract movement that represents the notion of sunrise.

The Wu Xing, (五行 wŭ xíng) also known as the Five Elements, Five Phases, the Five Agents, the Five Movements, Five Processes, and the Five Steps/Stages, is a fivefold conceptual scheme that many traditional Chinese fields used to explain a wide array of phenomena, from cosmic cycles to the interaction between internal organs, and from the succession of political regimes to the properties of medicinal drugs. The “Five Phases” are Wood (木 mù), Fire (火 huǒ), Earth (土 tǔ), Metal (金 jīn), and Water (水 shuǐ). This order of presentation is known as the “mutual generation” (xiangsheng 相生) sequence.

The five circles in the full screen mode represent the five essential natural elements, metal,wood,water,fire and soil(earth).

The movement later on further explains how these elements work with each other as well as their relationships to the nature.
