Accelerated time. Almost a year has sped past. Spent many months working on a 20 metre x 3 metre ’synchrotron art’ mural commission. Created huge files (>60 GB PSD). Literally thousands of layers. Weeks without sleep. 10 variations. Redesigned whole fromt of Synchrotron complex. Had an argument with director about Marcel Duchamp. Then somehow everything crashed!
Six months later I’m back with variation 11, a modest 4 metre long image (a ‘Gicelle’ print done by PRISM imaging that came out very lovely). With the help of some ‘insider scientists’ I put up a ‘renegade’ mini-exhibition around the entry to the LINAC (the heart of the accelerator complex). Finally the world gets to see my “electron’s eye view synchrotron portrait” in situ. However, ironically the only people who are actually allowed to see it are those who have done the necessary radiation safety training courses and have clearance to enter the inner zone of the synchrotron complex!
