Currently, I am exploring light as a subject of anthropological and artistic inquiry. Spending the last two months quarantined in my apartment due to COVID-19, I noticed and started photographing light in my domestic space. At certain times of the day, the sunlight creates curious patterns of shadow and light, allowing for new interpretations of familiar forms in my domestic environment. These patterns vary on different days and change rapidly. Capturing light events happening in my living space with a photo camera becomes a tool for closely looking at how light immediately acts upon the space, transforming relations between objects, colors, and the architectural elements of the room.
