Framing Time (last edited: 2019)

About this exposition

In my research I am collecting and drawing attention to natural fleeting occurrences. Those moments in time that can never be repeated and can only be experienced from a specific positioning. The reflection of the sun, a gust of wind on water, light in a mirror, the internal feeling of suspension, or a startle response that can never have the same effect more than once. Natural fleeting occurences happen because of an alignment of exact spatial relations - including the time of day, the weather the day before, the height of the observer - me - and a seemingly endless set of measurable spacial relations. I as the researcher label these individual spatial relations Positionings and am also interested in the ratio of when the positionings are choice or chance. My task as a Sceneographer is to observe and intervene in these Natural Fleeting Occurrences and investigate the positionings thoroughly so as to capture that moment in time and understand how specific spatial relations aligned to create the occurence. The next step in my research is discovering ways to document my data in order to present a retrospective scenography; a survey of past events or experiences. I have labeled the two methods of documentation I wish to explore: In Situ, and Legend, happening concurrently and/or asyncronisously.
