Sky Drawings (Night,Day)

Sky Drawings (Night, Day) is a two channel video projection depicting the traces left by aeroplanes as they cross a particular section of sky. One projection shows lingering vapour trails gradually obliterating a blue cloudless sky, while the other shows a collection of red, green and white blinking aeroplane lights against the night's sky. Projected simultaneously onto a double sided screen the night and day footage cannot be seen at the same time.
