Being In Time (2018)
30 second extract of the full video
In the creation of Being In Time, every day, I stood in front of the camera and every day, I snapped a portrait of myself. In this, an accumulation, repetition and process of "time" were collected.
Stemming from the Zen Buddhist notion of a "moment", in which 1 snap of a finger is 65 moments, and one day equates to 6,400,099,980 moments (that's six billion, four hundred million, ninety-nine thousand and eighty moments), Being In Time is, therefore, an exploration into the awareness of the present moment, the impossibility of it, the poetry within the impossibility and a hunt for that moment. To make visual that tiny fragment of time in which we exist and disappear.
