‘Self-Portrait as Sine Wave’,
Photograph, 2011

From a photo series experimenting with the displacement of time and the concept of synchronicity between humans and technology.

A single vertical line of projected light moves back and forth in a sine-wave movement and I try to match the motion and speed with my own body. The movement occurs over 1 second and my camera is set to take a 1 second exposure. All three of us strive for perfect harmony.

The impossibility of total frequency synchronicity between camera, light and human corrupts the integrity of the image, creating patterned artefacts: the architecture of passing time. A shadowy other world is revealed where the human form struggles to keep-up or escape from the technology.
