Sunlight Video re-imagines the principle behind the ubiquitous digital display. Shining light through a set of crystals and colour filters, it creates abstract, projected patterns. In stark contrast to the physicality of the lens that creates it, the display is elusive; it can evoke the transience and mutability of memories. This installation is the first prototype for a work that will eventually channel direct sunlight through thousands of shutters and lenses to display both motion graphics and film.
