Unnamed Forty Two, 2018 — Sidelong :: (click image to see more)

The more I think about the work I make, the more I realize scale is a factor. Not in the size but rather in the relationship between the moment and the stream of time. The images I make all have a long duration, to capture movement that a glimpse can’t properly reveal. I’m compressing long periods into a single frame to include the dynamics of the world, because this is how we experience it ourselves – not as increments of stillness but as a continuous flow.
