Under Northern Stars
Living in rural Maine with little light pollution, we are lucky to see so many stars on a clear night. Star trail photography stacks multiple images taken from a fixed point. This technique creates concentric lines formed by the movement of the stars which rotate around the North Star. Inspired by my world and photography, I wanted to describe the immensity of the universe and our place, snug beneath it on our planet.
This pieces was made and donated to the Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) 2020 Benefit Auction. The auctions take place every September. To learn more, visit here.
