These images are “linear panoramas” taken from moving trains and other vehicles, they visualize the way travel distorts our perceptions using a unique type of spatial and time-based warping. Foreground and background receive distinctive treatments—as do vertical, horizontal, and diagonal lines. By experimenting with the way the iPhone panorama stitching algorithm processes unexpected inputs, I guided it into showing its biases, much as we all see the world through our deeply programmed biases.
I am interested in the way photographs abstract space and time; how they can capture cycles of construction and deconstruction and evidence of people living or just passing through. The viewer pieces together a puzzle of how the camera chooses to smoothly blend together disparate elements and invites reflections on the image-building aspects of human perception.
I love the poetic relationship presented by focusing on the grand qualities of the everyday experience of urban landscape.
