Multiple exposures on 35mm film - Not everything seen is real.
The photographs of the series Time Collapsing are multiple exposures on 35 mm film. The key sentence of the work is “Not everything seen is real”. To me, they are a dance between dream and reality. Various points in time collapse within each single negative and evolve into a new pictorial word – some of them smooth and gentle, others seething and tempestuous. Dream worlds burst into existence, seduce us to stay, make us pause for a moment.
With Time Collapsing I wanted to look at the world differently, wanted to show glimpses of what could be. I tried to visualize the secret pictures in our heads, the ones that are not visible yet palpable. I wanted to picture the unconscious mind rising in our dreams. Time and place are drenching into each other, absorbing and distorting our concepts of reality.
The series Time Collapsing is part of a trilogy, all playing with the same topic, but in variation. Regarding Lines Blurring the single exposures take place in different cities/countries. And within Truth Dawning, reality is drenched in unreal colours.
