In concert with the Nocturne Festival, Cube Gallery hosts a solo show by Ottawa artist and astrophotographer Sanjeev Sivarulrasa, featuring a series of photographic works and oil paintings. Visit the Cube Gallery website for updates on Star Parties, lectures and other activities during this year's festival. Sivarulrasa seeks out the vanishing night sky by travelling from the city to dark sky locations in Ontario and Quebec.
"When our sun sets, a thousand suns rise to light the night; but this reality is obscured by light pollution and our withdrawal from nature" he says. Drawn to the pristine night sky because it invites observation and awareness, he sees it as a meditative space where one can not only observe phenomena of the cosmos but also become aware of the role of the observer.
