Slivery Moon installation video
Here's my installation in the windows of Rodic Davidson Architects as part of the series By the Light of a Silvery Moon. If you're in central London you can find this on Bury Place next to The London Review of Books Bookshop, opposite the main entrance to the British Museum.
The lightboxes each have a double layered print to acrylic which shows a black & white image when only lit from the front, while a colour image burns through when backlit.
In each case both of these found images originate from the same negative, an early-mid C20 view of a seaside resort. Both were published as postcards.
The colour images have been heavily reworked to transform them to night time views. People, vehicles and other elements that don't fit the idea of a night view have been removed, colourful lighting added and always a silvery moon appears in the sky.
