I will be presenting a work from a new photographic project — Slow Takes — at Converge.
Saturday, March 18th – 7pm to 11pm
at the new Lipont Art Centre
4211 No 3 Road, Richmond
( Across from Aberdeen Sky Train Station)
The event will include readings by local authors, photography and performance. It is produced by ICOAAT and curated by Candie Tanaka.
During the event, members of the public are invited to have their portrait taken using a vintage twin-lens reflex camera and a relatively long exposure time. In the days of early photography, the subject had to sit still for an extended period of time, anywhere from five minutes to 1/2 hour. In today’s world of instagram, snapchat and the like, everything is almost instantaneous – including the sharing of the image. This project invites the audience to consider notions of time, and movement, where the blur created by the movement of the subject freely sitting during the longer exposure is part of the finished image.
