Sun Slips is a series of transparent photographs suspended and layered in space. These images were made between 2019 and 2022, and are studies on witnessing the slow passage of light through time. Temporary miniature sculptures made from various light reactive materials and colour films used in photography are photographed with multiple exposures as the sun shifts across the space and changes the composition of each structure in subtle ways. Enlarged, and suspended on transparent film the photographs are physically layered in space. They drape and shift with air movement, and cast latent imagery on the surface of the walls in the gallery. These photographs speak to the physical properties and materials inherent in making them; light becomes both subject and material.
