Blue.Hour explores the high contrast colors created in the landscape during “l’heure bleue,” the period of twilight each evening when there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness. Directly following the ‘Golden Hour,’ know for its diffused yet powerful light, the Blue Hour retains the diffusion but lacks the strong light source giving this period of the day an especially melancholic and meditative atmosphere.
Blue.Hour.001 is the first in a series of prints based from the video element of a large multichannel sound and immersive projection installation of the same name. The original video was formed from photographs collected in Joshua Tree National Park in June 2010.
Part of a private collection.
