Sunhouse Elevation and Sunhouse Azimuth are two structural films which constitute a single dual-screen work dealing with the progress of the sun through a South London Victorian terraced house. This architectural moving drawing focuses on the spatial, material, and temporal qualities of light. The primary occupier of the house is sunlight; the touch of the sun is a substitute for the touch of the viewer, allowing the viewer to enter the space through association with the light.
Although the films appear to record a single day, the footage was shot over a longer period, the solar elevation and azimuth significantly altering their relationship. Sunhouse Elevation is structured by the sun’s angle of elevation above the horizon, and Sunhouse Azimuth by the solar azimuth calculated from due North.
