Lumen: School of Light

Dancing with Sirius: lines of light, Lumen: School of Light @ Ugly Duckling, Bermondsey, London 3 – 5 February 2017
Invisible lines made visible through photographs of Sirius, the brightest star, taken on the summit of Cerro Tololo in the Chilean Andes during my artist residency. Following Sirius with handheld camera, random choreographic gestures were drawn in the air creating ephemeral ghost-like threads in the night sky.
Photographic installation of 17 mounted matt black prints on Hahnemuhle photo rag (24 x 30cm & 24 x 60cm) total 150 x 150 cm.
