Snow Code

Mixed media (light, animation)

Early in 2014 Munro began experimenting with Morse Code, conveying the spoken and written word in pulses of light. Munro was intrigued by employing it he could produce both pattern and a decipherable message.

First shown in November 2014 in the White Room, Waddesdon Manor (as part of his Winter Light residency, Munro chose to base the piece on his minds-eye vision of gently falling snow.  Here the many Inuit words for snow are transcribed into Morse coded flecks, in an exploration of language, graphic and light.
