Accumulations time and space (accumulations over time and space)
MetadataShow full item record
An observation, whether it be real or fictitious, has the ability to create its own meaning within the context of ones reality. With the use of video technology, I record both staged and found situations that exist in limbo states. On the surface, they appear to be familiar spaces and places that the eye would naturally pass over. For example, recording the back of a figure or a blank billboard implies without revealing, while remaining autonomous and infinite. By hyper-focusing on seemingly banal occurrences, one has the ability to become a creatively conscious observer. Regularity is deceptive, as are our poetic imaginations. These video pieces act as catalysts that engage previous experience and thought. Specific cinematic techniques function within this body of work; particularly the long take, a slow pace, the static camera, and the use of mundane subjects. Each piece reveals a visual moment extracted from a universal notion and understanding of experienced time. By suspending these particular visual moments in time, I remove them from the pace of lived reality so they can enter an alternate reality. The images persist and reverberate within individual consciousness to create unique narratives specific to ones own understanding of the minimal amount of information given to them. The familiar becomes unfamiliar again.
