Check out this amazing video of the breathing RCBs Cloud from my exhibition “Wonder”, filmed and edited by Owen Elliott.
The Breathing Cloud is a knitted imagining of the clouds of carbon rich dust produced by RCB stars. I wanted to explore connections between these stellar events and the every day business of being human. I imagine the stars exhaling clouds of dust into the universe, in the same way as we humans (carbon based life forms) breath in and out, expanding and contracting with each breath. You can read more about this body of work on my portfolio.
This work was a collaboration between myself and engineer, Daniel Macnish.
