BREATH OF NATURE
Private Corporate Collection, Ausin, TX
Captured in this work are multiple images of various Austin environments, taken over multiple weeks, seasons and times of day that merge together to create a singular impression. Time-lapse techniques and digital manipulation are used to make various “moments” blur together and express the “passage of time” visually. Within one gesture, they communicate different atmospheric qualities of a given environment. Photography is, in itself, a sort of time machine that transports you to a moment - this work takes that notion and distorts it, obscuring the scene while keeping intact a hazy essence. Like a memory trying to resurface, it is a challenge to identify specific components, however the feeling it creates will resonate as a familiar experience and place. Morphed into a very organic, cellular-like pattern, the imagery conflates into legible biological forms. From a distance the overall mural reflects a lively, vibrant yet soft-edged impression of Austin landscapes. Upon closer inspection, the viewer may discover details that give away its specific locale.
