Lightbox 1 _Dublin 2009

Lightwave Festival, Dublin. Ireland

Lightbox is an installation that takes imagery and sound from the Antarctic and presents it to a Northen Hemisphere audience using a room converted into a low-tech visual communication device (the Camera Obscura). Video and data of the Aurora Australis (in the Southern Hemisphere), along with photographs from Scott Base in Antarctica, are treated digitally and then projected onto the walls of the gallery in which the Lightbox sits.


Lightbox was installed at the Lightwave Festival in Dublin, Ireland between January and February 2009. This event invited some of the world’s most inspirational scientists, designers and artists to experiment with illumination and light.
