    In my work I attempt to visualize and manipulate the structure of time in space. I hint towards temporalities that are fluid, speculative, and somewhat loose. I am looking for the line that divides the finite (probability) from the infinite (possibility). If time is a succession of instants, I want to see what lies in between them. With this series, I invite the viewer to experience time and space interchangeably, and to entertain the possibility of disjointed timeframes occupying the same space in a nonlinear way.

    The images are composed of two exposures or more, taken instants apart, which are then spliced and joined vertically - and also woven together - within a single frame. There is a fracturing of time in these photographs, and each photograph holds a brief sense of continuity; almost like an animation and slightly cinematic. These photographs fracture time and expand it, to illustrate the flow of time as something that is fluid.
