inner circle: Dawn sky from Cairo || outside: Dusk sky from Maui/Hawaii | GMT: 05:40 PM
LIGHT ART BIENNIAL - AUSTRIA 2010: exhibition Grand Finale @ GALLERY AREA53
Images from the sky at the moment of dusk and dawn are constantly sent to a screen, where a central circular field of one sky is superimposed on the other. Tracking over time around the earth the light of the sky in the inner circle is changing complementary to the light of the sky surrounding it. Two moons circulate around this field and their position shows the local time.
The realisation is based on the SUNPENDULUM project by using its online image streams of the 12 Time-Eyes around the earth. With the earth rotation, that means over time, dusk-light and dawn-light can be tracked by selecting those 2 videocameras directed towards the dusk- and dawn skies respectively.
Technical realisation including live image capture by Marcus Priesch in collaboration with the Sunpendulum team and the Sunpendulum partners around the earth. experience online http://www.sunpendulum.at/clp/tlp-online.html
