Residency starting in September!

I am delighted to say that next month I shall be starting a year’s residency as an Artist in Residence at the University of Exeter. I shall be working with Dr Gavin Tabor at the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences to explore new artistic aspects of fluid flow, using the equipment at the Department. This will be a wonderful chance for me to work with scientists and to experiment with new techniques and equipment.

The residency has been made possible by funding from the Leverhulme Trust. More details of the residency can be seen in the latest Leverhulme Trust Newsletter – link given below. It was a lovely surprise to find that one of my images had been chosen for the cover of this edition, shown below.

I will be writing a weekly blog of my activities at the University, so you will be able to follow my progress online. Needless to say, I’ll be including lots of images in the blog as well!

Here is the link to the Newsletter: Leverhulme Newsletter August 2011

Welcome to lightscapes too!

For the past few weeks I have been making images of light travelling through glass. Below are a few examples.

Glass turns into pieces of light falling from above .. nothing ever remains the same for long.
