Light from Tomorrow
Light from Tomorrow centres on an expedition to The Kingdom of Tonga, where tomorrow’s outdoor light-readings are broadcast in close to real time through The International Dateline to today; specifically to a lightbox installed in the San Jose Museum of Art in California as part of the group exhibition Edge Conditions The lightbox in San Jose responds to fluctuations and broader changes in outdoor light conditions in Nuku'alofa offering a tangible connection to the future, a window quite literally onto tomorrow. We think of the gallery component of this artwork as a romantic landscape, which is both minimal and monumental; a space for contemplation, a poetic void and an experiment in time travel The lightfromtomorrow.com website documents the expedition and exhibition, while forming the basis for a lecture given at The National Maritime Museum, which lies on the meridian in Greenwich, London. It is part of a body of work we are making that explores our relationship with simultaneous global communications systems and time; a series of artworks that sculpt with time in real time
