Covid has changed all of our lives over the past six months and as we enter a new world, has our sense of time changed too?
As part of our Creative Work Shop artist residency programme, our latest artists-in-residence, Robbie Coleman & Jo Hodges, are developing an evocative project and inviting around 50 participants to record and reflect on the passing of time entitled Northern Exposures. Over a two-month period, Northern Exposures will capture both a photographic and personal memory of that time.
How does it work?
Each participant will be asked to take home a pinhole camera and place it in a window looking out or in their garden and leave it there for two months. The single image that the camera captures includes the movement of the sun through the sky and will be a record of the passing of time and place.
You will also be asked to reflect and comment on your own personal experience of how that time has passed. The project will culminate in an exhibition of images and words, as both collective memory and a communal sharing of time.
