Natalie Hunter uses photo based installations on transparent film, sculpture, photography, and light to explore memory, the senses, time, and perceived experience as fluid and ephemeral processes. Through her art practice she explores the poetics of time, temporality, chance, perception, light, motion, consciousness, and making as they relate to sensory comprehension and memory formation. Whether sculpture or image based she engages with materials and 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. Her evocative installations composed of image and sculpture create contemplative spaces and experiential encounters that become poetic mediations on the act of making, the fragility of memory, and our relationships with the material and immaterial worlds we exist in.
