Brian McClave and George Millward are the only people to have captured the Aurora Borealis (the Northern Lights), on film in three dimensions. Brian is an artist using three dimensional film, and was awarded a special grant form NESTA (National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts) to go to the arctic circle where he was able to film the Aurora Borealis. George Millward is an astro physicist. Artist and scientist filmed simultaneously from two lakes 20 miles apart in Lapland. This is the first showing of this extraordinary footage and will be shown in a specially constructed space within the Millais Gallery.
Brian McClave has worked for the past ten years with the medium of digital stereoscopic (3D) video, making a series of works that examine how technology effects the way we experience the world. His major concern has been how human consciousness can be expanded by inventions that allow us to see both thousands of light years away, backwards in time, or observe some of the smallest things in existence and inside our own bodies.
