Natalie Hunter creates photo-based installations on transparent film, sculpture, photographs, and moving images that explore relationships between embodied experience, spatial perception, the senses, personal memory and identity. With a fascination for both image making and working with materials by hand her research and studio practice poetically investigate the shifting sensory experiences of light, colour, time, consciousness, and motion as they relate to memory and perception.

Whether sculpture or image based she engages with immaterial concepts, ephemeral processes, and material form while considering how the spaces in which we dwell affect our perceptions of time and place, and resonate with associations of memory and the senses. In both image making, sculpture, and their installation, light is fundamental to her process. She often employs and exploits the immaterial principles of photography - light and time - with the material aspects of sculpture. Her evocative installations composed of image and sculpture create contemplative spaces and experiential encounters that become poetic meditations on the act of making, the fluidity of memory, and our relationships with the material and immaterial worlds we exist in.
