A series that involves recording a location, to show the passing of time in a montage style. Each strip of photograph in the montage is taken at a different time. There is a sense of the intimate intricacy of how time moves, and how people are actually closer to one another, traveling in the same space with others, albeit at different times.
I’ve always been intrigued by the constant subtle changes in my urban environment. Every subtle shift affects my feelings and thoughts, hence my images respond acutely as a poetic reflection of myself in this environment.
By working on this series, I explore how time moves in this seemingly static urban space. The people become the moving energy flowing through this space, marking the changes, forming the time.
These images also explore my fascination that there are probably many time dimensions in this universe. We may have ‘life’ that exists similarly on a different path, one minute before or after ours. We merely exist in this current dimension, and sometimes when time paths collide, we have déjà vu experiences.
