Penumbra

A “penumbra” is that region around the focal point of the cast, where the shadow is only partial, or imperfect. These form when a portion of the light from the source gets blocked by the shadowing object, not all of it does. ‘Penumbra’ by Bethany Hunton is the most recent Tunnel Gallery Commission as part of the Celebrating Hidden Middlesbrough project. It explores the hidden narrative of the ornate, elliptical railway station roof– designed by British architect William Peachey, that was once there before its inevitable removal due to severe damage during a German air raid in 1942.
