Peculiar Motions at Dusk

Johan Österholm

20.02.2016 - 04.03.2016


On an autumn day in the mid 1660’s the young Isaac Newton found himself observing orchard through the window of his study at Woolsthorpe Manor in Lincolnshire. As the afternoon descended into the light of the evening and the moon appeared as a pale disc right above the trees, he was startled by the sight of an apple dropping to the ground. ”Does the moon also fall?” he asked himself, and as he returned to the worktable he made a mental note for what would later become the Law of Universal Gravitation, the starting point for the Scientific revolution.

At the very same time as the apple fell to the ground in Lincolnshire photons of light started traveling towards our Solar system from the stars Mira A and Beta Centauri. It travelled unhindered for 350 year until it reached Earth, where it was used to expose the photographs now at display. Appearing as miniaturized night skies filled with small dots of celestial light, this starlight was collected and fixated on the now-rare apple that Newton first saw becoming a momentary celestial body. The meeting of these two physical motions, the drop of an apple that revolutionized our understanding of the world surrounding us and the perseverance of ancient light, creates a photographic event using light that predates the invention of the photographic medium itself.

Located at about 1,5 Million kilometers from Earth lies the second Lagrange point (L2). Here, surrounded by dark and quiet vastness, scientists are placing the James Webb Space Telescope in 2018, a large light-gathering mirror made of gold-coated hexagon segments in a mission to open up the Universe on an unprecedented scale.  This point in space, on the orbital plane between two large bodies, in this case the Sun and the Earth, where their gravitational pull cancel each other out, allows a smaller body, for instance a space telescope, to maintain a stable orbit. At KHM Gallery a scaled version of this space telescope has had it’s light gathering function reversed, transforming it into an illuminator that immerse the space in silver gelatin light.

Johan Österholm (b. 1983) received his BFA from Umeå Academy of Fine Arts in 2013 and will complete his MFA degree at Malmö Art Academy in 2016.
