20 x 27 cm / 8" x 10 "

 

 

            like to travel to visit coal power stations and take

            hundreds of photographs of their smokestacks

against the sky. Watching through the camera's viewfinder the smokestack conducting combustion gases into the air, I often find myself projecting on the nebulous, cloud-like gases all sorts of sentiments.

Later, browsing through the hundreds of photographs taken, I select and print those that capture the gas's fleeting symmetry before its dispersion by turbulence,

on which I then apply drops of acrylic ink before folding and unfolding to create a Rorschach pattern  ◆

 Light sculpture exploiting neon lights, a curved acrylic mirror, bamboo/scaffold poles, clamps and a portable electric generator refuelled daily w/ fuel decanted in bottled water bottles, a litre of which is currently cheaper than a litre of most bottled waters including those used in the work, to produce the illusory image of a double rainbow.
