Icelandic morning light, cast mulberry paper, time
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, fourteen sections of time in the sunrise sky were layered on top of one another to form a visual corridor of changing light. What results is a composition of sunrises 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.
