Using photography as her medium, Laura Ellenberger plans to create a series of time based works of art onto light sensitive emulsion that engage the life, landscape and photographic tradition of Hill End.
Ellenberger plans to set up ten to fifteen long exposure pin hole cameras in the landscape and public and private buildings for the duration of her residency. She will also make similar images using shorter exposure times with a lens based camera. As the exposure times are reached (some being up to three weeks or a season) she will develop the photographic images in a makeshift darkroom. Towards the end of the four week residency Ellenberger will stage one or more small pop up exhibitions in Hill End encouraging a dialogue with Hill End’s residents and visitors to the village.
