When time is compressed into a single image, something magical happens. Our view of the world is no longer singular but all-encompassing. The way we perceive a space is not through what we see initially, but through the building blocks formed from elements in our field of view. Like a film where all the scenes take place at once, a still life is born from individual exposures that combine to create a cohesive environment. What originally existed in a space? What is the new world we see? A photo inherently forces you to examine the moment being captured, or in this case, what a moment even is in a universe where time is not linear. If the context of a scene gives information, how can we use that information to create a new space and further engage perception? Time becomes a sculpting tool. Fabric casts and individual components are no longer bound to a single moment but interplay with each other in unexpected ways. Sometimes objects dance on the background; sometimes the background influences the subject. In all cases, things take a strangely playful direction. By choreographing what we see in unexpected ways, a new world is achieved —one where the best shot is the one that pulls everything together.
