contained within and without

Digital prints and magnifying plastic 2001: 17x 18cm

This work was a series created for the second exhibition. This project was a curatorial collaboration, a collection of artists where selected and given a brief to explore the space between one subway display case and its adjoining space.

I worked with the actual architecture of the display case, as it had the design appearance of train windows. I videoed outside and within trains capturing people for stills. A voyeuristic look at people in private moments within public space. A sense of the moment condensed and amplified. Bottled time whereby the passing is suspended.

Exploring the transitional boundaries of public space and the particular emotions and expressions of each commuter seemingly suspended within the illuminated lense scupltures. Referencing photography’s own process of creating perception of recorded time.
