Silence in Synesthesia

Entry Description

Our conception of the reality around us is a continuous act of layering moments of experience. Yet, the sense of the moment is a fluid concept. What we see as real is only defined by our belief structure. Have we ever wondered, what if time can arbitrarily weave together one to another, what will it change our perception of the moment? To create this project, images are blindly overlapping in-camera by rewinding the film after exposed. Through an entangled web of intended actions and unintended instances, the act of photography has transformed into a theatrical encounter, playing in the present and using the moment. It is also a silent conversation riff off between two realities, probing the other sides of probability and provoking the visual senses.
