Tate Work of the Week

Astrophotography...The Traditional Measure of Photographic Speed in Astronomy...' by Siegfried Marx (1987) 2006 by Cerith Wyn Evans born 1958

The Tate’s “Work of the Week” this week comes from the first of the new DLA Piper Series: Constellations which opened last week at the Tate Liverpool.

It is called “Astrophotography…The Traditional Measure of Photographic Speed in Astronomy…’ by Siegfried Marx (1987)” and is by Welsh sculptor and filmmaker Cerith Wyn Evans. This huge glass chandelier is not only striking but, as often with Wyn Evans’ work, has layers of deeper meaning to it. Often replete with literary and lingual references and deeply influenced by his earlier work in film, this particular piece flashes under control of morse code, signally his unique interest in communications.
