We did it

From the 1st to the 17th of August 2018 we will attend the Lumen Residency in Atina, Italy to develop our photographic artistic practice.

About the residency 

We will be doing the residency with the art collective called LUMEN who are London based and work within Astronomy and light. We will be exploring the countryside, taking in the local history, working with telescopes looking at the crystal clear skies and most importantly working from the Campo Cassino Observatory and the observatory in Atina. 

We will update on a daily basis our time in the Art Residency through our Facebook Page Bright Dark Matter

Thank you for helping us reach our goal to create art in a one-time life opportunity.

THE PROJECT: During the time of the residency, we aim to reflect how the landscape transforms and is in constant change and how it lets the invisible for the naked eye be recorded with the photographic camera. We claim that time is a speculation and a social construct that let our eyes be deceived in order to create meaning.

Supported by technological tools such as astronomical apps and the analog camera, we ambition to find the right spots to see and capture the milky way, star trails among others astronomical phenomena near Atina. We are interested to see how the different time exposures in the camera vary and affect the images, how the same frame changes over time and gives a different meaning to what we see: a new ontological experience with each photograph.
