Theory Over Time
For me, a moment may be easiest to digest from all formats of time.
One hour has too many minutes where lots of things can happen. One second is too short to comprehend anything that has happened.
Theory Over Time began as a way for me to see that which passed by too quickly when viewing people walking about the city. I always want to linger on individual frame of a sequence to study how each differed from the other. Expanding on my need to “see”, I chose to take an hour of time and divide it into 10 photographs taken at six minutes intervals.
Starting off points began with my walks throughout the city and places I've gravitated to for one reason or another. The spaces photographed are random in selection—to the extent that they're not preselected before setting up the camera.
The only control I maintain is framing and shooting. The time at which
I make the exposure is dictated by a stopwatch that counts down to zero. I must make the exposure at zero (rendering no control of image content).
The images seek the everyday serendipity we don’t often observe. Time, space, and place are explored for their unique differences from moment to moment.
Things change—air, light, shadow, movement, people, Earth.
