I-St Augustine's Old Graveyard, uDerry; Ukufakwa kokukhanya okungapheli

Ingoma kaConor McFeely ethi 'Mariner' iyindawo yokukhanya ehlala njalo emathuneni amadala esonto likaDerry's St Augustine's. Umsebenzi wobuciko wasesidlangalaleni ugunyazwe i-Art Arcadia, inhlangano yokuhlala ephethwe amaciko ehlinzeka ngezindawo zokuhlala zamaciko endawo nezamazwe ngamazwe, izakhiwo zayo zingaphakathi kweNdawo Yamagugu yase-St Augustine.¹ 

Kufakwe amashubhu e-LED amhlophe angamacylindrical ayishumi nantathu kuzo zonke izizathu, phakathi kwamatshe amathuna. Ahlelelwe ukuthi anyamalale ngokulandelana ukusuka ekushoneni kwelanga kuze kube phakathi kwamabili, njengokukhanya okubonakala kuhamba ngendlela etshekile kuya ezixhumanisini ezihlakazekile. Isihloko esithi, 'Mariner', sisho uhlelo lwe-NASA's Mariner, uchungechunge lwamarobhothi okuhlola amaplanethi athunyelwa ukuhlola nokuzungeza amaplanethi aseduze phakathi kuka-1962 kuya ku-1973, aqanjwe kanjalo ukuvusa umoya wokuhlola olwandle kokungaziwa.

Amashubhu e-LED afakwe phansi ngokuhambisana namatshe amathuna ahlukahlukene, kubhekiselwa "ebukhona bezithombe nomlando" wezikhumbuzo. Isibukeli ngokuyinhloko sibona umsebenzi ngaphandle kwamathuna, kusukela ezindongeni zedolobha likaDerry, ngothango lwensimbi olumnyama, uthango olubonakalayo oluhlukanisa umsebenzi. Izibani ze-'Mariner' azibonakali kahle phakathi namahora okukhanya kwasemini, bese zikhula ngamandla njengoba kuhwalala, ubumnyama obuyinki obufakwe imiphetho yejometri ekhanyiswe ngokufudumele. Izibani zikhombisa futhi zihlanekezele phezu kwamatshe, zigqamisa umehluko omkhulu phakathi kwamatshe amakhulu, ahlotshiswe ngetshe lesikhumbuzo, kanye nobuso obugugile, obumangelengele bamathuna athobile, okwenza umuntu acabange hhayi nje ngezinhlobonhlobo zezinto eziphilayo eziphelile lapha, kodwa indlela izikhundla zomphakathi ezichazwa ngayo ngisho nasekufeni.

I-'Mariner' yafakwa ekuqaleni ngo-Septhemba 2021 futhi isiyingxenye yochungechunge lwakamuva kakhulu lwe-'Mariner II', intuthuko ekufakweni kwangaphambilini. Umbono 'we-Mariner' njengomsebenzi omdala osuthathelwe indawo - ngokulandelana kwezikhathi noma ngobuciko - ngokuthuthuka kokwenziwa komdwebi, usikhumbuza i-James Webb Space Telescope esanda kuthunyelwa, inhloso eveziwe okuwukubuka umlando we indawo yonke ngokusebenzisa ukukhanya. 

Izibonakude zasemkhathini azisebenzi ngokubuka ibanga esikalini sethu seplanethi, kodwa ngokubheka izinhlobonhlobo zokukhanya okukhishwayo futhi kuvalwe izinto ezikude endaweni yonke. Ukukhishwa kokukhanya okukude kufanele kuhambe emkhathini omkhulu wezinkanyezi ukuze sikubone, okusho ukuthi i-JWST ayibheki ukukhanya okukhishwa ngesikhathi sangempela, kodwa kunalokho ukukhanya okukhishwe eons edlule, osekufinyelele kithi manje. Ukukhanya 'kwe-Mariner', ukuhamba phakathi kwamatshe amathuna, kungabonakala kunkomba yesikhathi, noma kunalokho umqondo wesikhathi njengento ebonakalayo.

Lokhu kuhlosisa, lokhu kubambelela kumqondo ophathekayo wesikhala, kukhuthaza ukuqwashisa kokuxhumana kokubili okungokoqobo nokomfanekiso, futhi kumema ababukeli ukuthi babheke ukuxhumana okungaba khona phakathi kwamathuna nedolobha elibanzi. Izindawo zokuhlala e- Mariner iyisixhumanisi somlando wendawo nokazwelonke. Phambi kwezindonga zedolobha likaDerry, iSonto lika-St Augustine limi endaweni yesigodlo sezindela sase-Colmcille's (Saint Columba's) esaziwa okokuqala e-Ireland; indawo ayinakiwe i-Apprentice Boys yaseDerry Memorial Hall, futhi ibhekene ngqo nephansi elingenalutho manje lesithombe sika-Governor Walker, esacekelwa phansi ibhomu le-IRA ngo-1973. Izibani ezijikelezayo ezihamba endaweni zihambisana ngokomfanekiso namaphoyinti omlando itholakala kuzo zonke izinhlangothi.

Kusukela lapho ngimi khona, ukukhanya okukodwa kuqondaniswe netshe elide emaphethelweni aseningizimu-ntshonalanga yesayithi. Uma ngibheka ngale, cishe amayadi ayikhulu noma ngaphezulu phezulu ezindongeni zedolobha, ngiyakwazi ukubona isipoki sikhuphuka onqenqemeni olusekhoneni; umbono ophakeme wonxande okhaki-oluhlaza okotshani, oboshwe ngokuvundlile ezungeze insika. Kuyinqaba yokubuka yeButho LaseBrithani, eyadilizwa ngo-2005. Namuhla kunezimpawu ezibonisa amagugu, amaqembu asohambweni lokuhamba ngezinyawo, nezinganono zasendulo ezigqobhoza emifuqweni, abantu bedwebe phezu kwemiphongolo bethwebula izithombe ozishuthe zona - kodwa ngisabona. it Lapho. Ithiyori yesikhathi sokuba khona ngokomzimba - kokukhanya ohambweni - ingishukumisela ukuba ngicabange kabusha uhlobo lwale nkumbulo enginayo. Kufana nokuthi ukukhanya okubhampa emehlweni ami kusuka esibukweni sokubuka kusesohambweni, kudala isimo sengqondo esiqondene nami siqu, esimbozwe kulokho okwabelwa wonke umuntu.

UKevin Burns ungumculi nombhali ozinze eDerry.

¹ UConor McFeely uzothatha indawo yokuhlala e-Art Arcadia ngoJulayi. Umbukiso wakhe uzovulwa e-St Augustine's Old Schoolhouse mhla zingama-29 kuNtulikazi (uzoqhubeka kusukela mhla zi-2 kuya ziyisi-6 kuNcwaba).
