Happy Holidays

I’d like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy Christmas, a happy holiday season, and a peaceful and prosperous New Year.

Thanks for taking some of your busy time to enjoy my work during 2013.

Here is the famous Hohenzollern Bridge in Cologne, Germany.

Speed of Light

Between March 21 and 23, the arts charity NVA organised a large scale public art display in Salford Quays, England called “Speed of Light”. Based on the interaction of movement, light and sound over specific terrain, the exhibit featured 120 runners wearing special LED light suits, each individually controlled from a central system to instantaneously change colour, flash-rate and pattern, producing stunning light patterns, particularly when captured on long exposure images or specialist film.

For a watching audience Speed of Light can be seen as a piece of abstract art, operating at the grandest scale, where the physical surroundings become an open canvas carrying a new visual language, expressing mood and movement, comprised of form, colour and line. It is also a monumental public artwork equally at home on a hillside or in the urban heart of a city, but one that is still surprisingly quiet and reflective in its mood.
