Four Days, Founder's Hall

I am interested in historical architecture as the container for time as it is defined and revealed by light. Using time-lapse photography, I capture the light as it transforms a space from sunrise to sunset. Intensity, color and direction of light depend on architectural design, geographical orientation of the building, time of day, season and current weather conditions. Over the course of a day the life and breath of each space are revealed. The ephemeral quality of light plays upon the structure and suggests a tension between historical time and geological time; the animate and inanimate; permanence and transience.
