Free Tempo Pendulum (2021)
Free Tempo Pendulum is a meditation on temporality and the dimension of duration. With a direct flash, I photographed rocks suspended in the air at quarries around Syracuse, NY. The action combines performative, geological, and technical time: the 1/1000 of a second that allows my camera to make an image meets the short passage of time that it took for me to throw a rock in the air, which together meet the deep time that formed the rocks in the first place. This gesture cracks time open, exposing its truly manifold nature, and expands the notion of what is possible in the here and now.
