Solargraphs

The sun controls the quality of light illuminating a landscape. Daily and seasonal changes to the angle, strength and amount of sunlight are driven by astronomical processes, which are difficult to observe directly with the human eye. Solargraphs however, can record how the Earth’s position relative to the sun changes over the course of a single day, as well as over several days and months.

My solargraphs are an experiment designed to investigate the dynamic nature of our landscape. Essentially, I wanted to compile a data set with which I could compare and contrast sun trails recorded during different astronomical seasons. The project ran for one full year.
