Eline Cautreels


Together with Maarten De Beukelaer, Eline Cautreels examines how the continuously changing interaction between sunlight and architecture affect our perception of the room. By means of interventions in certain rooms, the duo try to capture the uncontrollable expression of the sun directly on photographic paper or liquid emulsions. In this way, they create images that make imperceptible, abstract concepts such as ‘light’ and ‘the passing of time’ visible to the viewer in a different way. The contrast between current photography and these in situ interventions is further enhanced by the digital recording of the creation process. While on the one hand the natural result determines the focal point, camera-controlled photography, on the other hand, immortalises its creation process in a rather distant and neutral way. Eline is a laureate of Toegepast 17.
