Ra!

This installation consisted of 7 A2-size prints on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308gsm watercolour paper, suspended from the ceiling using rods and magnets. Each one was hung with space in between and to overlap the others, creating a disjointed giant sunflower high in the air. As people move through the exhibition space the air wafts the prints as a sunflower moves in the breeze.

The piece quietly reflects on the significance of sun worship in many cultures throughout history and takes its name from Ra! the Egyptian sun god.

Installation resulting from participation in the Turing Sunflower project run by the Museum Of Science & Industry (MOSI) in 2012.

It was then exhibited at the Buckinghamshire Museum, Dean Clough Galleries in Halifax, UCLan and at Oxheys Mill Studios in Preston.
