These are recordings of ambient light. I was contemplating memory and what is the essence of a place. What makes a place unique? Culture is dictated by the topography and subjected to by the weather. I thought that light and its effects on a place has the greatest impact on the way people live there lives. I had already made recordings of ambient light in significane locations in the hope that if the place had been visited there might be some neurological recalling of a place once visited. Looking forward. I wanted to see if you took live accurate light readings and relayed it to other parts of the world how would it manifest itself in new places. There would be a sensory link to a place, void of human filters and associated images to a place. All that would be seen is the day to day lives of peoples in different areas of the world.
The works are a combination of different places around the world and at home. The blue orb was for a light festival in Groningen. The festival was at night as such I thought it would be good to take a line is taken through the centre of the earth (from Groningen) it will hit a small archipelago called the Chatham islands. being at the city’s opposite it was 12 hours in-front of Gronigen . As a result when the sun went down here the light recorder would begin recording the sun rise there. It created a link between the two places and a way of experiencing what other people are experiencing weather wise. Other work plays on a still of a location recording and other time based relays from England, New Zealand and the Netherlands.
