NGC1313 Spiral Galaxy in Reticulum – Abre Ojos @ Electundra

abre_ojos_ngc1313The latest Abre Ojos project is based around the amazing astronomy photographs of Marek Dobiecki, artist, teacher and astronomer. Dobiecki has built himself an observatory in his backyard in the Dandenong ranges where he tracks the night sky with his computer controlled f4.5 x 30cm Newtonian Telescope capturing galaxies, nebulae and star fields. The photographs are wonderfully fragile, textured, grayscale images of up to 2 hours exposure time revealing things we can not see with the naked eye.

These photos have been taken and built into a series of audio reactive animations and match to sounds built on the modular synth that have been created drawing on inspiration from space recordings and low frequency atmospheric sounds of the earth.

NGC1313 is being premiered at Electundra at Loop on Saturday November 21st @ 3pm sharp, tickets are $12.00.
