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

we are in touch

I am very happy that Diego Lopez Calvin from Madrid has requested a camera to participate in the project. Diego along with Pawel Kula and Slawomir Decyk originated the technique of solargraphy which is documented on The Solaris Project website. I had sent a camera to him in June, but it got lost in the post, but he has one now, just in time for the Autumn equinox.

He signed off his email 'we are in touch' and for me that really says it all about this project in so many different ways.

virtual and physical connections

The can cameras are spreading far and wide now. Locally based author Orlaith O'Sullivan wrote about this project on her blog and as a result 5 more cameras are winging there way to locations in Ireland and Europe. Thanks Orlaith!
