Absent Night

Absent Night explores cosmic and artificial light sources in the context of dispersal and accumulation, operating on a factual and conceptual level. Objects and drawings reinterpret global areas of artificial light density records from satellites. The constellations of stars are mapped out in books. This body of work originated as an echo of some time spent in northern latitudes with the absence of a wholly dark sky during summer and vice versa in winter. I also became interested in the parallel between growing clusters of man made light and increasingly fading night skies.
