# Return to Ritherdon: Light Meter
## Table of Contents
Light Meter is one of three smaller projects which make-up the
'Personal Flash in Real-Time' -- which is one artwork within the main
'Return to Ritherdon' project. You should view the three smaller
projects as one project. And, for the purpose of this documentation, I
will refer to 'Personal Flash in Real-Time' as a system instead of an
artwork.
To be added later...

### 'Personal Flash in Real-Time': Project Overview
## Return to Ritherdon Overview
'Return to Ritherdon' is a two year residency at Ritherdon & Co Ltd, a
manufacturer of metal enclosures based in Darwen, Lancashire U.K. It
was devised by artist Nicola Ellis and funded by Arts Council England.

### About the Artist: Nicola Ellis
Nicola is interested in the properties, value, function and
circulation of materials. She has a current focus on metals and the
companies that work with them, her work draws on the visual and spoken
language of industry operations, fabrication and profiling
processes. The parameters for her sculpture, installation, drawings
and videos include relationships between people, businesses and
technology.
### About the Manufacturer: Ritherdon
Established in 1895, Ritherdon have been manufacturing a variety of
electrical enclosures and related products for many decades. A
combination of a passion for innovation with close working
relationships with their customers means that they are continually
developing and expanding their product ranges.

## Light Meter: Project Overview
Light Meter is one of three smaller projects which fall within the
Return to Ritherdon project. You should view the three smaller
projects as one project but, at the time of writing, the project does
not have a name. So, for the time being, I will refer to it as
'Artwork 1'.
### 'Artwork 1': Project Overview
The overall project ("Artwork 1" not 'Return to Ritherdon' or 'Light
Meter') consists of three separate/smaller projects. The names of the
smaller projects are a by-product of the software development
process. You should not view them as individual pieces within the
overall project. From an artwork point-of-view, "Artwork 1" is one
piece. The name of the software projects are 'Light Meter' (which is
this one), 'Midpoint' and 'Relay'. All three projects reside in their
own git repositories. You can find the other project's repositories at
the following links:
