Light is by definition visibility, it illuminates the world for us to see, but paradoxically, we rarely see light for light itself. It is only at certain times of day, Magic Hour being one of these, that light’s own character reveals itself more clearly as an entity. It is these intimate moments of organic and fleeting experiences of light, framed within the rigidity of the urban template of London that I have been drawn to in my practise. Although the Magic Hour has drawn me away from the traditional means of photography, what I have found is that the daily performance of Magic Hour, within my own domestic space, mirrors the inner mechanisms of a camera. The lowering sunlight enters through my flat windows creating rectangular pools of light on the walls giving a pure uninterrupted image of light itself, much like the light that enters the lens of the camera and exposes an image on the film; my home becomes the lens of receptivity. I have realised the importance of being able to bear witness and be part of the atmospheric process of receiving the light in real time rather than photographing the moment and reproducing it as a 2D depiction. Such realisations have led me to experiment with an immersive and experiential installation-based practise, the result of which was displayed at my degree show in June of 2018.
