Portrait of a swimmer over time (2007)
"Defining new modes of expression and their use is a task that demands questioning the relationships between the real and the virtual, and the revelation of levels of acuity of perception created by them. I worked with Nick Holliman in the Durham Visualization Laboratory to investigate the imaging of movement in space over time. We created images I call ‘volumetric temporalities’, conflating the elements of movement in space over time into three-dimensional volumes of information that shape one another rather than elements that exist singularly. The series of images titled Treading Water(2007) represent our investigation. They offer a new way of experiencing and visualizing the gaps we know exists between actions but are seldom acknowledged. By investigating space and time in algorithmic three-dimensional form, reconsiderations of lost or hidden areas of a structure may be found. In this case, the movement of figure and water and light reflection between actions are made visible."
