I finally had the chance to hang the RCB Cloud in a gallery space for a photo shoot. It’s so good to see it out of the studio – I think that this work needs space to breath.
The RCB Cloud is my interpretation of the carbon rich dust clouds ejected by RCB stars. I am also working on an audio component to these works in which the sound of breathing becomes louder, heavier, softer or lighter in correlation with graphs mapping RCB stars’ magnitudes. I like to imagine that these clouds of dust are exhaled by the RCB stars, like the breath of living organisms. In this body of work I am trying to locate the individual in the context of the universe by linking their everyday existence to stellar events.
