'The Manipulated Time' Photo-based (C-prints) collages mounted on 20" x 30" boards 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. Read Less

The Manipulated Time
A series of collages made from Chromogenic prints
20 x 30 inches (board measurement)
2012
 
In my work I attempt to visualize and manipulate the structure of time in space. I am looking for a physical manifestation of time that divides the finite from the infinite. 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. These images fracture time and expand it, to illustrate the flow of time as something that is malleable. 
 
Each of these collages was created by hand manipulation. The process involved slicing darkroom (Chromogenic) prints and composing the individual slices into the resulting scenes.
