The Learning Space is proud to show a new work by Blue Mountains artist Chris Caines.
Libration Song is a video piece based on our intimate and mostly unconscious relationship to the moon, the ocean, and its cycles. The videos in this artwork are synchronised to reflect the cycle of the high and low tides of the Rhodes shoreline.
Starting precisely at high tide at the beginning of the exhibition period, the videos slowly move in and out of phase as the moon shifts the tides, coming back into synchronisation at the end of the exhibition.
Enjoy this meditative and poetic work as we celebrate the first moon cycle of the 2020 Lunar New Year.
Libration Song runs from 10 February to 4 March 2020.
