‘Luminous Capture #7 (positive)’   - animated lightbox, LED lights, microprocessor, duratrans, custom acrylic housing.      Releasing light until it vanishes  - Hannah Jenkins    http://rundog.art/luminous-capture-yvette-hamilton/   “The meditative tick and whir of the lightbox heating up and fading back down is hypnotic. Perhaps some ingrained memory of mine recognises this characteristic and immediately associates the pattern with the rhythmic sound of waves crashing. The automation of ‘Luminous Capture #7 (positive)’ (2019) feels like time ticking through minutes, decades, centuries. Each flash is a slice of time, happening in both a linear fashion—one after the other, but also collapsing—one on top of the other.  How fast did that time move across the sky, and reflect back into my eyes? Am I truly capable of seeing every flash from storm Diana or just the prolonged exposure?  These works have captured light, but they also acknowledge that light expands out to the horizon and into the dark—and allow it the space (and time) to do so. Now the light is looking at me.”

  Glass Capture #1 - 5   Install photograph: Ellen Dahl  “Rodin said photography is a lie, ‘for in reality time does not stop.’  However, in examining the UV imprints of ‘Glass capture #1 – 5’ (2019), I see all kinds of micro and macro growths and recessions, like a psychedelic petri dish, or a choppy ocean. The transfer of light has touched everything here, from the work’s beginning in that Scottish lighthouse, to the morning light that passes through the glass panes, casting milky shadows on the gallery wall, before finally bouncing back into my eyes.”  Hannah Jenkins
