Abstract

After long periods of travel or feeling jetlagged, one’s circadian rhythm is disrupted, and the body is out of synchronisation with the local environment. Spending time in daylight, particularly at sunset or sunrise, assist in reorienting and attuning the (human) body to the environmental surrounds through multi-sensory registers. However, processes of gazing and photographing can easily lapse into a representational account of the ideal tourist landscape. In this chapter, time-lapse photography is explored as a mode of moving beyond representational accounts of travel. A creative artwork is discussed in which the sensations and relations between one’s body, the motion of the time-lapse photographs, and the planetary movements of the sun setting and rising become entangled in a non-representational account of these bodily environmental adjustments.
