These photographic drawings are made in the light of the half moon on the nights 27 and 28 august and the New Moon on Sept 9 2020. A remote lockdown project in a river, a ‘Hydrograph’ kinetic sculpture instrument uses a turbine to animate a light source to produce long exposure night photographs. The flexibility of the long drawing wire enables the light to delicately reflect variations and bouncing in the flow, never repeating. As the flood waters drop, the sculpture is installed in a place in the river that feels right for the aesthetic and the practicalities of making photographs at night. Stones are moved around to create space for the turbine and direct flow to produce some mechanical energy without damaging the ecosystem.
