4D Lightbox

An 8" rhomboid, lined with photosensitive blueprint paper, is nested within a larger 12" cube and exposed to sunlight light at three 2-hour intervals. The cuts in the outer cube mimic the openings in the inner rhomboid, allowing light to penetrate the box.

From the three exposures, an axonometric time mapping drawing is created with the addition of six interpolations. The 2 dimensional exposed areas were then rotated 90 degrees and assigned opacity based on the incoming direction of the original light through the cube's faces.

As time shifts in the vertical axis of the drawing, the shapes wax and wane, moving with the sun's path.
