Blue Sunrise

Detail documentation.

Blue Sunrise is a fourth dimensional painting that uses light captured from the sunrise sky in Iceland during the winter months. Over a two hour period, the sunrise moves from the deepest blue to white and immediately back again. There are only 4 hours of sunlight per day at this time of year.

In response to this light cycle, I layered fourteen sections of the sunrise sky at different times to form a visual corridor of changing light. What results is a sunrise compressed into one visual and temporal plane so the length of sunrise and its ephemeral quality can be experienced in a single place and time.
