Attempting to record and document the sun from Margate’s beach by replicating 17th century apparatus that would of been used to record sun spots.
The sun spotter is set against the present context and space, giving the work a romantic and poetic feel, but also revealing its own history and our desires, ambitions and need. The piece was developed by looking at the history of Margate. Particular references are made to Turner, and Margate’s Victorian History, that is seen within its architecture of the town.
