A Cosmopolitan Cosmology

This is a collaborative arts project based on Sherkin Island, West Cork, Ireland.
From June 21 2009 - December 21 2009 we used pinhole cameras to record solargraph images on the islands of Roaring Water Bay and its environs. Cameras were distributed among the Sherkin Diaspora reaching far and wide. This blog documents the process and solargraphs created. For current work please see my website

Workshop May 23

We worked hard last weekend. As one pinholer put it - 'it was hard graft'. We weather proofed 65 coffee can cameras, loaded them with photographic paper in a makeshift darkroom, agreed a set of instructions for positioning cameras and had a mini-tutorial on how to load text and images onto the blog. That is a lot for one afternoon.

I think we need a bit of a break now and will not be doing any work next weekend.

In the meantime I will be wrapping cans to be ready for posting. We need to send them soon, so I will be collecting addresses from here on in.
