This is a follow up to my previous series Time is a Dimension (TIAD). In TIAD, I spliced different time slices into a single print. That was to work within the nature of a physical print. However, in this set of manipulations, I present a medium that is neither a print nor a video. In short, I use the GIF format (don’t ask me how it is to be pronounced!) to create a looping animation that shows a single landscape / seascape but with a constant shimmer of … time.
I wonder if an omniscient being experiences something like the sets below? Where all instances are One. And past, present and future are merely terms… OK, enough with the new-age talk, let’s get to the fun part:
Now, the files are pretty large, so they are best viewed with a broadband connection. I hope you find the viewing worthwhile!
Finally, when you are ready, just click/tap on the images to view the relevant GIFs! (High Res versions- about 9-13MB each- can be seen by clicking on the text links below each preview)
The following GIFs flicker, so I do not hold responsibility for any adverse health effects by staring at it for prolonged periods of time.
If you happen to find this cool, and are a museum/gallery curator – drop me a line! I think it will be interesting to show even higher resolutions of the above pieces in an installation.
