Melinda James is a filmmaker and cinematographer whose work encompasses documentaries, narratives, installations, and commercials. Composed of moments from her personal archive, Know That I’ve Enjoyed Sunshine, is a four-channel video installation exploring the presence of absence. The work looks at the way joy, pleasure, and longing become interwoven in the recalling and remembering of moments passed and the people and places found within them. By looking back at where we have found love, we acknowledge its nuance and almost inexpressible complexity—the weight of something heavy left by all that was good and the acknowledgement for new experiences that will eventually come to fill that space.
