A limelight illumination at a restored lime kiln in the Welsh National Park of the Black Mountains was broadcast setting a real-time time frame for a live event in Cardiff. The event formed the base of an exhibition commissioned as part of Cardiff Contemporary (2016). The live component of the exhibition entangled the two locations of the work (Black Mountains & Cardiff) within one event structure. It distributed and multiplied the images and forms of material lime, weaving its geological, chemical, industrial and optical properties through each of the sites. A film work of the live event was presented through the duration of the exhibition.
