From there to here and secret chord: Marks make meaning

Charlie Hooker

Research output: Non-textual outputExhibitionResearch

Abstract

This two-object output is part of a sequence of Heliograph works linking the Visual Arts to Meteorology and Climatology. Based upon the principles of a meteorologist`s Sunshine Recorder, it features the use of specially-prepared lenses which harness the rays of the sun to burn patterns into the surfaces of a variety of materials.

In keeping with the other outputs in this series, a major part of the research into this object-making process is to conceptually locate the viewer within the rhythms and cycles created by Nature and aspects of Chance and random systems historically developed by artists such as John Cage. The sun-generated scorch marks, although predictable, cannot be totally predicted and can never be repeated.

SECRET CHORD features a ‘fixed’ scorch mark set within a sun-generated Cyanotype print. FROM THERE TO HERE burns ‘live’ in front of the viewer as an interactive installation.
