‘East to West; Round & Round’ – by Jessica Sheila

This is a series looking at lights transient moments as the day comes and goes. How those brief moments are on the constant brink of change and transformation, drawing its way across the surfaces of our everyday. How surfaces change their appearance as the light traces over them, their moving shadows.

– Jessica Sheila



‘Another underlying theme within this series is to consider the cycle of life, and to think about the constant loup that life is on. Moving from day to night, the motion of the earth, life and death and so on. Lights transient moments are just as brief and beautiful as those of life.’

‘This series is located in Florida, USA, in various parts of the state, on the east side, central and on the west. I was fascinated with the colors and the everyday sunshine. Quite different from Eastern Canada, where i’m from.’
