Ian Chamberlain Drawings and Prints


The Sat. series of etchings have recently been re-worked and were inspired by a research trip to Goonhilly several years ago. This original project was my first use of Etching as a means to explore a location and the theme of the man-made.

Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station is located on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall, UK. It received the the first ever trans-Atlantic satellite TV images, broadcast by Telstar, on 11 July 1962. The project led the way to modern satellite communications and is now set to become a new Space Science training centre for space mission operators.
