Artist Talk: James Nizam

Please join us for an artist talk with Diverse Voices from Vancouver, BC featured artist
James Nizam. Nizam’s conceptual photographic practice is labor intensive and time-based, requiring extensive research, experimentation, and planning. Combining his interest in constructed environments with the study of the physical qualities of light, Nizam cuts holes in the walls of empty rooms to record the movement of the sun over time, taking multiple exposures to create geometric forms in the space. In his recent Starlight Drawings series, Nizam spends hours photographing the night sky in complete darkness, capturing starlight on film as patterns of light and color, enabling the viewer a glimpse of the seemingly imperceptible.
