Shutter is a formal exploration of the phenomenon of the sun eclipsing objects in the natural world. Inspired by footage from a friend and amateur astronomer's 16mm record of the 1980 total solar eclipse, this work captures the beauty, complexity and terror of the shifting light that precedes and accompanies a solar eclipse.
