Tine Guns focuses on the constant metamorphosis that we experience as human beings, and the inability to capture the fleeting reality. The influence of our memory on how we perceive images results in multiple perceptions and interpretations.
She plays with and challenges the parameters of cinema & visual storytelling. Our (collective) Memory & History are a main source of inspiration for Tine Guns so she worked a lot in Archives, personal and collective archives.
In 2015 she started a PhD on the relationship between Editing in Cinema and Photobooks at Luca School of Arts Gent & KU Leuven.
