MFA student Megan Bent is the current Orvis Artist in Residence at the Honolulu Academy of Arts. Her project Sun Maps of the Phenomenal started this past weekend on March 26 and will run until May 7, 2011.

" The purpose of this project is to create an installation, which will show the unique invisible phenomena of each museum visitor's travels through the Honolulu Academy of Arts."

Visitors to the museum can wear a pinhole camera to a courtyards of the museum. The sunlight will create a pattern onto the negative that represents the visitors movements. Visitors can also make long exposure photographs of their movements with light inside Studio 30.

You can visit Megan and create Sun Maps on Saturdays from 10 am - 4:30 pm and Sundays from 1:00 - 5:00 pm.
