Created during the Braziers International Artists Workshop (UK) in August 2002,
this installation combines aspects of both visible and UV drawings.
The piece was made for the ceiling of a small out building on the Braziers grounds,
a seventeenth century estate in rural England which is home to an artists
residency during the month of August.
The drawing began by hand cutting approximately 4,000 paper circles
ranging in size from a 1 to 3 cm in diameter. These circles where
then striated with drawn lines and then adhered to the ceiling of the
work shed in a loose net-like structure.
Intended for viewing as a "living" drawing, the piece is affected by
the natural change of light throughout the day. The pattern
created by the net structure is altered by the fading of daylight
which makes visible the effects of an additional ultraviolet light source,
effects that would otherwise remain invisible.
