#3, 2015, Soltran print under acrylic glass, LED light box (12v) incased in circular ply frame. Unique photographic sculpture. 600mm(d), $850



The lightboxes in N Ý R S T A Ð U R were created from the light exposure recordings of stars in other solar systems, obtained from NASA’s Kepler Program.

Each image represents a different planet Kepler has discovered and NASA has deemed viable for colonisation. The numerical data from the light readings are processed through a code that generates an organic landscape mesh. The final result is combined with photographic practices and manipulations to create scenes of evolved future humans and their landscapes.
