Natalie Hunter

Natalie Hunter’s poetic installations are realized through diverse media including photography, sculpture, video, digital imaging, and works on paper. She is concerned with the transformation of materials, objects, and images in ways that invoke an emotive or psychological response in the viewer. Her practice explores how the sensorium shapes perceptions of human memory, time, the everyday experience, and consciousness. Drawing upon personal history and forms of storytelling her installations traverse the boundaries between perceptions of past and present, reality and fiction, material and immaterial, presence and absence, motion and stasis, body and mind. In her most recent work she often uses light, transparent film, alternative photography processes, and other fragile materials to produce experiential and spatial installations that explore memory, the archive, time, space, the self, and the fragility of lived experience. In this way her work addresses the material and experimental possibilities of hybrid image and object making in a digitally saturated culture.
