Each disc started life as a single copy of The Cambridge Atlas of the Stars.  By pulping the atlas and recasting it, the information contained within the original book was rendered invisible.

About the Edition

Each disc started life as a single copy of The Cambridge Atlas of the Stars.  By pulping the atlas and recasting it, the information contained within the original book was rendered invisible.

The title Ghost came from thinking about this process. The material was compressed and abstracted leaving a ghost presence or a souvenir black hole, a blank of the atlas.

Because of the processes involved in making each piece, each one will be slightly different, the surface of each having minute yet unique detail. Ghost is 20cm in diameter, it is wall-mounted and made to be placed at least 7ft from floor level.

The process of turning a map of the infinite reaches of space into a single block of material (an object) is what fascinated me. The light blue/ grey disc can be read as a plaque, something used to designate or label space or, more pictorially, a planet-like object. It hovers above our heads on the edge of visibility.
