The Upper Room by Colin Wilbourn
Nikon F90X Pro, Sigma 28~200mm f/3.8-5.6 DL Macro – Fujichrome
A couple of weeks ago I posted an image of Colin Wilbourn’s Stone Stair Carpet here and when browsing the artist’s website I discovered I’d photographed another of his creations in Durham back in February 2000.
The Upper Room was created from 13 elm trunks, arranged on the bank of the River Wear where they had grown. From most viewpoints they made little sense but at one end of the ‘grove’ there was a seat in a hollowed out trunk and from this seat the image of the empty room, complete with the remains of the meal that had taken place there became visible.
Eventually the wood deteriorated and the sculpture was dismantled…
Digitised using Nikon D5600 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8 and Nikon ES-2 Film Digitising Adapter with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.
