About Oban

So far I found thirtynine variations of the size Oban. What’s all this fuzz about size? Why do I want to research scale, size and it’s relation to what you see and feel? I feel like I am hiding behind all the figures I found while I just want to enjoy travelling. Maybe I just want to make a trip from Oban to Oban and even through Jules Verne to Tacita Dean to find out about my work? It is all about digging into facts and be open to find new ways maybe with the same outcome. The trip is more important than the destination. Confused what to do now.

The Green Ray

(still from The Green Ray of Madagaskar by Tacita Dean)

Today it looks like this is going to be a flutter theory so I just want to mention something.

The Green Ray is a work by Tacita Dean, a british artist with fascinating works. Her subjects and the way she approaches work have a lot of interfaces with mine and I love it obviously. She made a video in 2001 called The Green Ray of Madagaskar and a flipbook with stills from the video. In this work she documents the entire sunset at the sea of Madagaskar. The green ray is an optical phenomenon that occurs during the last moment of the sun’s setting. Rarely seen from land, and then only when the horizon over the sea is 100% clear. In the video it’s only a glimpse of a second, if you blink, you’ll miss it. She said in an interview with The Independent;”it looks like a pulsating lentil…but according to Jules Verne, if you see a green ray, you will be transformed.”

Oban Scotland

In Scotland there is a place called Oban. Not that special untill I found a book by Jules Verne, called The Green Ray. This story is placed in Oban area and is about a natural phenomenom called the green ray. A green light is seen sometimes when you sail out from Oban Bay. The book is illustrated by Leon Benett. The first illustration shows a boat on a huge wave.
