Full Artist's statement
Most of my work manipulates time. I have long used a pinhole camera, with which ten seconds or ten minutes can be compressed into a single frame. More recently I have been working with slow motion video, which has something of the opposite effect when five seconds are revealed over a minute. Several of my long-term projects take the form of visual diaries as they track aspects of my life (such as visits to restaurants, hotels and gardens) over years. A new series of collages place vintage portraits of family members into contemporary settings, creating time-twisting fictions.
