There is an infinite number of blues and greys and all other colours one can see in the seas and the skies.
At varying intervals throughout the day, every day in the month of June 2019, out-of-focus, full framed photographs of the sea and of the corresponding sky were made in the Îles de la Madeleine. These thirty days and thousands of pairs of sea and sky are the basis of Days in de Îles de la Madeleine
Each work represents four different moments in June - four sets of seas and skies. Each work was developed in tandem with one other work of four sets of seas and skies and together these eight sets gradually transition from dark to light, light to dark, or from one colour to the next.
Each work is offered individually or as a set - either with the corresponding work or with any other or multiple other works It is modular work that can be configured in different ways.
The data gathering in the Îles de la Madeleine is part of a multi-year project. The project’s objective is to find how the colours of the seas and the skies compare at different latitudes in the Northern hemisphere. The Îles de la Madeleine is an archipelago located at roughly latitude 40. To complete the project, similar data gatherings will follow in two different archipelagos at roughly latitudes 60 and 20. Unfortunately, due to travel restrictions, the second data gathering in the Faroe Islands in June 2020 (latitude 60) has been cancelled.
