Image Stream

The time stream flows only one way. As it flows, all things change, although the alteration may occur at different rates. As I photograph, I frequently consider the mysteries of a non-spatial continuum in which events occur in apparently irreversible succession from the past through the present to the future, and this concept is manifest in the Image Stream. The Image Stream project is designed as a steady photographic-art production, realizing an image-per-day. The capture focus includes and integrates concepts of perception, reduction to essentials, and human placement in the cosmos. Always exploring questions about photography as a medium, this effort also addresses display presentation strategies. Rather than consider the production of art as the goal, I am more concerned with how the process and production of art affects my thinking, awareness and understanding. The process of photography is of course temporal. Radiant energy is recorded by carefully controlling shutter duration. The resultant images represent how something existed at a defined point in time. To me this interplay of slicing up time while stopping time with a photographic record is significant to consider. The overall flavor of the stream must be considered no more important than its mental nutritional value. When you exist in an ocean of images, only the interesting will elicit awareness.
