The Meteorite Hunter is an archive of a search for meteorites and the places they come from. The work is based on the impulse to search for the ‘other’ within the everyday. Using the notion of the Meteorite as a metaphor for the fantastical hidden with in the everyday, the body of work is a document of a hunt to locate the ethereal and sublime in the mundane and banal.
‘Thus easily can Earth digest
A cinder of sidereal fire,
And make her translunary guest
The native of an English shire.’
C. S Lewis
