Breathing Spell is a durational kinetic sculpture that responds to air movement, time, and light. Illuminated by moving sunlight, or static artificial light, these sculptural forms spin and throw latent imagery on surrounding surfaces of the space they occupy. Ultimately this work is a study on the passage of time, the ephemeral qualities of light, how it affects familiar spaces, the body, and our perception of time, and what this does to memory and immediate experience.
Natalie Hunter wishes to acknowledge the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts in producing this body of work.
