Artist Statement:


To make Mirror Window, at dusk (2019), Natalie Hunter photographed the same window in a familiar domestic setting at different times in one day, using 120mm film and a collection of handmade colour filters. Rolling the film through the camera on each exposure produced elongated double exposures that flipped the image of the window, much like a reflection through glass, or the mirror space of the camera. Printed on transparent film and installed away from the wall on a hand made armature, the imagery in Mirror Window, at dusk (2019) reflects, bends, and produces latent images on the walls and surfaces surrounding the work. We aren’t sure what the true image is: the image, its mirror copy, or the latent images on the wall. Depending on the time of day, the angle of the sun, or a viewer’s perspective, Mirror Window, at dusk (2019) appears different each time it is viewed, creating a durational encounter while calling attention to the slow passage of light through time and the ever-unfolding, fluid experiences we share in the spaces in which we dwell.
