Conceived in response to a photographic archive, illuminating an obsessive 30 year relationship, this work has developed into a meditation on the experience of time. The experience of time becoming more daunting as it is something that can never be grasped as Henri Bergson said, "the instant we attempt to measure a moment it is gone." These thoughts have led practise to and from the archival work of a retired French psychiatrist to rotate around ideas of time, space, obsession, repetition and control. Endlessly trying to find a way to collapse time within a piece of work, the layers of fragmentation, illusion, duration and distortion pulling together as they separate.
