Time Medium, 2017
gelatin silver prints, acrylic on plexiglass
The 'Time Medium' series is made through the photographic process of exposing the painting process of painted glass panels through a pinhole camera. The image develops as each shape is blocked out with black paint over the clear acrylic panel. Images of vases are used to create the forms, which are gradually revealed on the photographic film in the process of filling and exposing each section of the painting in precise exposure times. The motif of vase is used as a simple artistic form that reflects the ideas of the time and space, and the obscurity of a shape.
