The Blackout book

Blackout is an exhibition which centered around the production of a Poul Henningsen lamp of the same name. The lamp had been designed for Tivoli in 1941, during the Second World War. The lamp works on the principal of all the light being shed horizontally. With only vertical objects being lit nothing is visible from the air. One 'Blackout-lamp' was produced and installed everyday for the duration of the exhibition. Alongside this a Heidelberger press was been used to print a new photograph of the exhibition each day. These two processes combined to gradually alter and document the dynamics of the space. The Blackout book is the compilation of the photographs produced during the exhibition. Blackout is a collaboration with Simon Starling.
