The other week I invited Danielle to model for one of my class assignments. We got together around 8pm and I ended up using a 30-second long shutter speed to capture more movement while she walked around. This project was all about process, my teacher showing us an art21 video on Roni Horn's process when she's creating art, having us read Cathedral by Raymond Carver, and sitting in silence for a little over an hour. This is what I wrote to explain/supplement my series of photographs:
While sitting in the front lawn, watching the cars driving by and people walking through, I started thinking about how people transition through spaces, how people can be in an environment but are always moving from a grand to atomic level. While the physical structures of different locations may stay the same for years, people are transitory, flowing through the spaces without much permeance. I wanted to explore that idea with my photographs and I invited my best friend to explore with me after the sun had set. By having her transition through various locations, I wanted to tie together the theories I had with a concrete visualization of space, the play of cars driving by and the horizon with the Austin skyline in the background.
