The dance of countless bodies near and far
The Movement of Our Time
This work was created for a special moment in Lunar Mission One’s journey. With the launch of the collaborative and community areas it marked the start of an opportunity for people across the world to come together in a spirit of cooperation as they work towards a common goal.
The texture of this work crowds with innumerable fine grains of sand as if spilt evenly across the flat surface of a two dimensional plane.
Perhaps it is not so important to say what a thing is, as definitions and perspectives change from one person to another, and from one moment to the next. The Movement of Our Time is whatever best engages you - perhaps an idea that springs from its title and unfolds as you gaze at the work’s luminous folds, or perhaps it is simply the beauty of photons flowing in the darkness that you wish to savour.
Arts' great strength is its pliant quality and potential to encourage and convey conversations. For me, art is a place I build to work out where I might belong.
Like much of my work, The Movement of Our Time is more an expression than a representation. As I explore the image I uncover patterns of light that nudge me to one thought, then another. I traverse orbital paths across vast distances, I see clusters of egg-like structures that cling to one another in the wash of an immense celestial soup, I watch the dance of countless bodies near and far.
