Across the Dotted Line, 2010
Is time linear? How is time experienced? How is time witnessed? I photograph the hay bales that I hopped across. These stark white plastic forms situated in a lush green landscape, at dusk, emphasize the formal structures inherent in the creative process. Not only is there an obvious art historical connection to Monets hay bales and his Post-Impressionistic way of seeing, but also my hopping from one bale to the next connects to theories surrounding the flow of time.
