I have always been fascinated by the inter-connectivity of Time and Space.
Both time and space are temporary. Every moment of every day we are each a temporary inhabitant of the space we occupy. Every time we move, we temporarily fill a new unique physical space, and give up the old space to someone else. Even when we move through a seemingly identical daily routine, we never occupy the exact same space twice.
I love History and the concept of Time Travel. When I visit an historical site, I imagine the people who have previously inhabited the same space where I stand. Photography, History, and Time Travel have always seemed interconnected to me. When I look at a historical photograph, I imagine transporting back in time to experience what was captured in the photograph. History happens on a continuum. Every moment that passes creates a new historical record. 1 second from now is History in preparation. The perpetual momentum of the historical timeline feeds itself.
I have been enamored with photography as long as I can remember, first using my mother’s Kodak Instamatic 100. I still have that camera, and some of the photos I took with it when I was 7 or 8 years old. I think my love of History is due in part to my early introduction to photography.
I created these photo-montage pieces as study and an expression. Thinking about the inter-connectivity of Time and Space, I thought it would be interesting to see how a series of singular frozen moments in time can reveal a hidden world of overlapping occupants of a given space. I chose a grid layout to reflect our deep-seated desire to control the pace of time passing, desperately trying to contain every second of our lives. Even in popular public areas of our community, I don’t think we often stop and think about how we each individually share the same sections of space over the course of time as we move about our lives.
