Sensing Sun (Hamilton Winterfest 2023)
Colour photographs from 120mm negatives mounted in custom built light panels.
Sensing Sun is a unique photo-based light panel installation that explores shifting sensory experiences of light, colour, and motion as they affect Hamilton’s skies. Relying on the immaterial principles of photography - light and time - Natalie Hunter uses the sky as a subject to explore perceptions of time and memory. In Sensing Sun image, light, and colour create a durational encounter that speaks to the fluid, ever-unfolding experiences we share within the spaces that we dwell.
