Guided telescope viewing

(Sky)gaze is a component of Hope Sandrow’s project, Genius Loci, a series of site-specific events and projects that evoke “the spirit of place.” (Sky)gaze refers to the ancient practice of seeking information about one’s environment by observing the sky.

The project includes scheduled screenings of the artist’s video, Untitled Observations– images of the moon projected through a telescope on to the artist; and guided telescope viewings of the sun, moon, and celestial bodies, offered in collaboration with the Montauk Observatory, Suffolk County Community College, and Dark Skies Society, (under the direction of astronomers Sean Tvelia and Dr. Mike Inglis, and dark sky advocate Susan Harder). On select telescope viewing dates, Sandrow will offer photographic portraits of viewers with the moon projected on their bodies.
