Leaf Lanterns

Article text
Two new things that I am beginning to investigate is night time and the affect of the wind.

Lanterns lit by candles need light winds and still conditions both to capture the photo in a long exposure but also to keep the candle alight.

By creating leaf lantern sculptures I hope to draw myself closer to the subtle nuances of the wind and how the darkness changes the atmospheric conditions that might be encountered.

For instance the wind drops often just before dusk but then picks up again after the sun has set.

It is these sorts of things that I am looking for with my land art, ways to reveal the subtleties in the environment and to learn more about myself and nature."
