An exhibition of work by MADA Senior Lecturer Dr Leslie Eastman.

The Illuminated Field was filmed during an Australia Council studio residency in Spain in 2014. This version of the work developed for Islamic Museum of Australia is a four screen video installation that documents light from dawn till dusk at Abengoa Solar, Europe’s first commercial power station in Andalucía. A celebration of this sublime technology, the exhibition opens a deeper conversation with Islamic geometry and optics and the contemplation of nature, time and light as signs of the greatest context.
