dark cloud / white light is a fully immersive, multi-media art installation. It combines time-lapse, photography, 3D film, landscape art and sound to create an intimate experience of awe and wonder.
dark cloud / white light exhibited at Pataka Art + Museum (14 July - 13 October 2013) and Waterfront Auckland's Silo Park Gallery (January 2014), Pah Homestead Auckland (August 2014) and during Wanaka's festival of colour (April 2015) with over 130,000 people viewing Michael's work to date.
Each looping landscape features an original music soundtrack, individually composed specifically for the work. This includes collaborations with Rhian Sheehan, Michael Hodgson, Claire Cowan, Keith Ballantyne, Tristan Dingemans and William Basinski.
A behind the scenes documentary (exhibiting alongside the artworks) shows the remarkable journey Michael embarked on to capture these frames over two years.
Four artworks from dark cloud / white light received honorable mentions at the 2014 International Photography awards in 2014.
