Sunrise | Sunset – July 2017

Sunrise – Sunset (3), 2017. Photograph

Sunrise | Sunset echoes life and death, presence and absence.

I had not originally connected shadows with death seeing them only as beautiful shapes, tones, forms and patterns.

Shadows show the existence of an object on a sunny day or where there is a strong light source.  I’m interested in the shadow, not the object so in this video I have made myself absent whilst at the same time acknowledging my existence through my shadow on the wall. In other words I have made myself real despite my absence.
