Over a two year period I participated in a residency program at the New Museum called New Inc. During this time I co-founded a research and development lab focused on the invention of new technology for in-camera photography and film-making.
My hope has been that this lab would be a place for the development of technology that would otherwise not exist. It has led to the development and patenting of various light based technologies which provide new ways of playing with the representation of time.
This work extends my interest in how we experience and learn about our world through imaging technology that is directly in conversation with it. I'm specifically interested in how we perceive and deal with past moments through these technologies.
This page is a journal where I will be sharing experiments and new work from this project.
Here and Then
Specific past moments, captured in a fraction of a second, yet changeable in the present -- thinking about memory, identity, history, myth.
These experiments combine simple optical devices with materials sourced from the construction of domestic spaces, focusing of overlapping materials in various states such as sand and glass. The invention of light-sources moving at supersonic speed enables the use of moving light within images arrested in time.
Installation / Interactive Work
Viewed in a physical space, the position of a viewer within that space alters the record of that frozen moment. These can be viewed interactively online.
