Frequent Time

black and white photography (2015)

6 black and white giclée prints on wood.

Time is a measure in which events can be ordered from the past through the present into the future. It is often referred to as the fourth dimension. But what if we evoked a specific act that was present in its significant moment in the past and recalled it in one particular present moment to create a future out of this combination? Twisting the dimension of time and forming a loop of internal and maybe eternal reproduction.

This set of 6 photographs was shot during a video projection of different events that took place somewhere in (the past). The video was projected on a grunge wall at a specific time (the present), at that time, I was present to take still photographs from this projection to reproduce it later (the future), creating a loop in time and questioning the actuality of what is described as “new.”
