Sunflares bounce off orbs, solar winds shape dust which glows againstthe black background and distant galaxies sparkle as if Riepenhoff hasdiscovered another Witch's Head nebula. The celestial landscapes areRiepenhoff’s investigations into how small insignificant things canbecome fascinating.

Instar is the name for the biological term of the molting stages ofinsects and Riepenhoff was inspired by writer Rebecca Solnit’s quoteon the subject: ”The strange resonant word instar implies somethingboth celestial and ingrown, something heavenly and disastrous, andperhaps change is commonly like that, a buried star, oscillatingbetween near and far”.

Photograms at heart, Riepenhoff’s galaxies are created in absolutedarkness using not only found objects but using a negative projection

The objects I use are domestic detritus and the negatives are ofpersonally significant landscapes,” she says. “I’m interested in thepotential for the insignificant to evoke the immense, the personal toresonate at massive scale, and the often­reactive meeting places ofseemingly opposing forces in the midst of transformation.” It's a trulylovely series. If however, you prefer to view the real thing, there's noone who does it better than our very own David Malin.
