Shapes of Time is inspired on the past, present and future of (Dutch) polar research and the ever present sunlight of polar summer on Svalbard. By using long exposure camera obscura technique the images capture the mystical landscape and the sun's track over a period of hours, days and sometimes several months.


Music by Heartless Bastards

The images were created during an artist in residency on board the Netherlands Scientific Expedition Edgeøya Spitsbergen, an initiative by the Arctic Centre of Groningen University and the Willem Barentz Polar institute.

Dutch media reported on the expedition. Mostly in dutch, some links below are in english:

Temo Gonzalez Moreno produced a solarsoundscape, based on one image and inspiration from the project, check this link.
