Light and Dark Moon Rock Drawings originally rendered in Indian and Meteorite Ink, installed on the north side of Castle Mill Works, large-scale renderings of fragments of anorthosite and basalt collected on the Isle of Iona relating to the opposing dark and light characteristics of the moon and eclipses. 

Large scale prints by David Faithfull on Castle Mill Works., commissioned by Edinburgh Printmakers for the DARK MATTERS exhibition curated by DF.








Anorthocite or white Feldspar (CaAl2Si2O8) is found in a few locations on Earth and is the main constituent of the the moon's white surface - the black craters in between revealing the black basalt core beneath.







These additionally refer to Newton’s own intellectual and spiritual dichotomy, particularly his extensive Alchemical studies into the occult and Chronology.
