Unn-Therese Dida Sundet is a Norwegian artist currently living in Melbourne, Australia. Dida works with a number of techniques to create her work, ranging from staged photography to sculpture and installation, but considers herself mainly to be a Light Painter. Her constructed photographs explore notions of displacement, cultural traditions of storytelling and the politics of horror.
Dida’s most recent work situates the imagination as site for the construction of trans-identities and poetic realities. Her work unites aspects from an extensive background in theatre, film and photography in both Norway and Melbourne.
Dida is currently undertaking a MA Visual Arts (Research) at La Trobe University, Bendigo, Australia.
A Tail of Transformation (2011) was awarded honorable mention in the 2011 International Photography Awards. Selected images from her series Down a Rabbit Hole (2008) and Performing Metamorphosis (2009) was awarded honorable mentions in the 2009 and 2010 International Photography Awards.
