La Lune: Art Producing Energy, Long Reef Headland, Collaroy (2014)
The sculpture is supported by the structure of a pop up tent. Its walls are made of 2 layers of georgette silk to form moiré patterns, with shapes of light traced from light beams shining through the trees & bushes at Long Reef cut out partially, so they hang down & move in the wind. These shapes are drawn using solar paint so they glow in the dark. The tent is weighed down with a damask doona cover filled with red soil. HQ is inspired by our desire to commune with nature expressed powerfully in Australia’s culture of recreational camping.
