……………………………………………………..

This practice-based artistic research project developed a method of durational observation to record samples of daylight over a year. The observations of light took place on the 21st day of each month from December 2015 to December 2016.

Beginning in pre-dawn, changes in luminance and colour were observed at three points near the horizon; the ground below the horizon, the sky just above the horizon and the sky at 15˚ above the horizon. The changes in light in each position were recorded in RGB values at 10 minute intervals until darkness fell. The resulting data sets were developed into the Orbit Series and were also used in the The Light of Home, a short immersive film for fulldome projection environments.

The experience of observation combined with the infinity of light became deeply immersive and states of presence occurred regularly for the observer. The images resulting from this localised embodied process each show a single 24 hour observation. Combined this small repetitive action reflects the larger view of the tilting orbit of the earth’s annual rotation around the sun.
