PAMELA PHATSIMO SUNSTRUM
1980, Mochudi, Botswana
Based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum's multidisciplinary work encompasses drawing and animation, and alludes to mythology, geology and theories on the nature of the universe. Her animation Polyhedra - a poetic cosmogony and personal interpretation of the order of things - merges time-lapse photography of the milky way with Sunstrum's own watercolour paintings and the work of Tempest Anderson, an early 20th century explorer and pioneer in volcanic photography.
