Christina Seely: Lux

Just as we are about to haul out the holiday decorations and add a little more illumination to the season, it’s a good time to take a hard look at Christina Seely’s series, Lux, which focuses our attention on energy use in the United States, Europe, and Japan.

Lux documents the artificial glow produced by major cities in the three bright regions as seen on a NASA map of the world at night.

In a time when it is argued that no aspect of nature is unaffected by human impact, my work reflects on a lifestyle that fosters an intense need to control nature while existing in an increasingly delicate balance with it’s resources and rhythms.”
