Shot in miniDV in Armenia, August 2006
A Ray of Sunshine is based on footage shot near Lake Sevan in Armenia, around a derelict hotel that was left abandoned when the Soviet Union collapsed. Starting from an almost black screen, the image slowly opens up to reveal an ambiguous landscape, while the sound transports us to a different perceptual space. Using colour and sound, the work questions the realities of the recorded image in an attempt to inscribe the personal in a continuously changing landscape.
