Photographer William Hundley made a BFA in Studio Art at Texas State University in San Marcos, TX. He lives and works in Austin, TX. In 2006 he began an ongoing series of photographs that he titled “Entoptic Phenomena” in which he photographs people jumping underneath fabrics. The instant of the jump can be thought of as an ephemeral sculpture, lasting only a few seconds before reverting to their base components. The resulting photographs appear to have been made by computer manipulation, but Hundley stresses that there is no software used in creating the images. A few of his “Entoptic Phenomena” photographs were featured in the 2007 Texas Biennial in which he was awarded the Juror’s Choice Award. Though not initially mentioned in the credits, a few of his ideas were re-created in the music video “Heaven Can Wait” by Charlotte Gainsbourg featuring Beck. Eventually the director, Keith Schofield, contacted Hundley to apologize for not crediting his work as “inspiration” for portions of the video.
