sky-wheels by Alec Finlay can currently be viewed at The Hatton Gallery here in Newcastle upon Tyne. I collaborated with Alec during this project for a year throughout 2007/2008 making a piece we know as ‘sky-wheel’ – I set up a camera pointing at the Northumberland sky for 365 days in a waterproof housing to capture it’s varying shades of blues and greys, samples from which form the final piece. As Alec writes on his site:
“This wheel refers to the day, week, month, season and year, with the final amalgamated year colour being completed on midsummer’s day 2008.”

Here’s a sneak preview of ‘Iona Triptych—Sacred Visualisation’, which will take centre stage at the show:
Before moving studio, I was commissioned by BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art to make a series of prints for Raqs Media Collective, one of the last exhibitions printed in Unit 20.
