Suzy Bell, poet, artist, art columnist, and cultural activist, will be exhibiting two works, together entitled Sun Flung, at artSpace Gallery in Durban, South Africa.  The works will be an iPhoneographic representation of the line “On his wise shoulders through the checkerwork of leaves the sun flung spangles, dancing coins” from Joyce’s Ulysses.  To create her images Bell shoots a series of light paintings on an iPhone 4 and, though her medium is technological, she feels the project serves as a “reminder that we are intrinsically part of nature.”  Bell is drawn to Ulysses because, as she says, it “is a wonderful, generous literary work for an artist to leave behind for humanity to explore.”  Access more information on Bell’s Sun Flung here.
