Experimental photographer Osheen Harruthoonyan has a refreshingly organic and beautiful interpretation of our world. His newest body of work, entitled A Circle of Bluebirds, draws on the scientific principle of converting the earth’s electromagnetic spectrum into sound waves. As charged solar particles hit the radioactive belts surrounding our earth, they get trapped and whirled about. This movement of energy, converted into sound, reveals itself as the familiar soundscape of birds chirping. Osheen has created a series of observations from another earth, photographs in which scientific literacy is married with artistic creation. The result is one of magnificent beauty.
Nominated for the Premier’s Award for Excellence in the Arts, Osheen has already caught the attention of VICE, Bravo Arts, Space Channel, Canadian House & Home, Eyemazing’s Annual Pictorial Vol. 1, and now the latest installment of CBC’s documentary series The Exhibitionists, airing at the end of December.
