If the moon moves water, the sun moves shadows

5-20 October, 2017, Seventh Upstairs, Fitzroy. Oil on aluminium, dimensions and light variable; digital video 15:07 loop. 
Photographed by Christian Capurro, 13 October, 2017.

A Polaroid photograph was filmed at the site where it was shot, for the time that the image took to develop. This version of this work (ongoing since 2004) places an emphasis on duration through the ambiguity of the when the recorded moment ends, and through interruptions to the ‘image’. The paintings in this exhibition follow a similar logic, but through their different registration of time and luminosity shift the focus to a complex present-ness.

This work was developed while a Master of Fine Art candidate at Monash University with the support of the RTP. The abstract for the exegetical document that accompanied this work can be found here.
