Sphaerae – loscil

Sphaerae is a music video derived from scans and photographic treatments of Pacific Bull Kelp bulbs found on the shores of Galiano Island on BC’s west coast. Originally conceived as a photo series questioning the nature of artistic representations of space, it evolved into a video and is scored by internationally acclaimed Vancouver-based ambient music composer Scott Morgan (aka loscil).

The first publication of an image from the original series was in VR #8. A set of four was later exhibited at Gallery Atsui in the fall of 2009 as part of a show curated by Todd Nickel. They were also shown at 560 Seymour St. as part of the All Quiet on the Western Front show in February/March of 2010 where two of the four pieces on display were stolen and remain unaccounted for.
