Sun-Penetrations

Download Portfolio // Sun-Penetrations // >>

My ongoing art project Sun-Penetrations shows photographs and 1-minute videos of beams of sun, which penetrate externally into the inner space, through windows, curtains, doors, burned glass, holes or creaks. Most works are half dark, calm and abstract images. And although the focus is on the bright sunbeam, and mostly no humans are visibly present, the human is palpable.

In Sun-Penetrations the female-body is inside the home, the private space when experiencing the sun in her passage of time. Sun-Penetrations move around the perceiving domesticated body and its interpretation of the penetrating sun. My works come into existence by my own body travelling and thus living and staying in hotels, motels, residencies and new homes.
