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.”
