Abstract:

The book contains images of works from several different projects that all deal with temporality. The works in the book explore duration and the idea of "time's arrow" by capturing a sequence of moments that illustrate a process of change-- often dictated by entropy (i.e. ice melting, candles burning, pictures developing, paper fading.) Some of the images are of arrangements of sand from an hourglass-- measured out increments of time (i.e. seconds, minutes, hours). Softcover, 76 pages, 43 images.
