The Illuminated Field was filmed during an Australia Council studio residency in Spain in 2014. This version of the work developed for Islamic Museum of Australia is a four screen video installation that documents light from dawn till dusk at Abengoa Solar, Europe’s first commercial power station in Andalucía. A celebration of this sublime technology, the exhibition opens a deeper conversation with Islamic geometry and optics and the contemplation of nature, time and light as signs of the greatest context.
