The Meteorite Hunter
'The Meteorite Hunter' is an investigation into Meteorites, the places they come from and the illusory realms they represent. My interest is in the relationship between the imagined and reality and the parallels that exist. I explored the idea of a Meteorite Hunter - someone who is committed to the art of finding space rocks. Their job entails searching for a glimpse of a translunary guest, a clue to something that tells us more about who we are and where we come from. I use the notion of the Meteorite as a metaphor for the fantastical hidden in the everyday and the work becomes evidence of a hunt to locate the ethereal and sublime in the mundane and banal.
