Weather lore speaks of the equinox gales; strong winds that occur at the equinox. While the equinox gales are generally considered to be a myth by meteorologists, over centuries many people have observed this weather phenomenon.
Simultaneous Light seeks to make visible seasonal changes in weather and lighting, through a series of cyanotype flags. Over 12 months four flags will be flown in the Bundoora Homestead grounds to mark the summer and winter solstices and the spring and autumn equinoxes. Alluding to scientific diagrams, these cyanotypes are made by the material they depict: sunlight.
