Transit


Seventh Gallery, Melbourne
“Transit” comprises a series of analogue photographs presented as diptychs. These murals are handmade colour and black-and-white analogue prints. “Transit” explores the duration of time and movement within photography.

“Transit” examines this concept through the work’s materiality, subject and presentation. Black-and-white photographs are made using expired paper, giving them a grey exterior and depleting them of all white, a contemplation of duration. Each diptych has been captured in a state of flux, seconds apart in order to create a subtle change, both in the shift of gesture and spatial displacement. One set is positioned so that the viewer passes between the photographs, unwittingly becoming a participant in the exhibition and illustrating that we too are in constant transit.
