SOLAR GEOMETRIES
An architectural research project and landscape installation, conceived and constructed within three days on The Isle of Wight. In reflecting a solar ray toward a chalkstone escarpement with a mirror and throughout different times of the day, a significant variation in solar incident and reflective angles were revealed, beyond our assumptions. On 9th July 2010 three solar angles were analysed in detail and their incident and reflective ray angles were obsessively recorded. These solar ray geometries were then manifest as timber forms, each enclosing a mirror and pertaining a unique solar defined geometry. Located within the wider landscape at the point of initial measure, then wait... until 9th July the following year, to visually resonate at that specific solar angle and illuminate the chalk escarpment once again. The project was undertaken during the annual 'Studio In The Woods' in collaboration with research directors Kate Darby and Gianni Botsford.
