Series: Tempus Incognitus

"Tempus Incognitus" (Time Unknown) is my series of photographs depicting hotel rooms in which time and space fade into one another. Think Edward Hopper interiors awash in James Turrell colors with David Lynch directing.

"Tempus Incognitus" challenges our intuition about time by showing the day's intervals of changing light existing concurrently. The Cubists painted individual scenes from several different perspectives at once. I photographed individual rooms at several different times of day from a single perspective.

I utilize a time-intensive technique that captures the evolution of light and emphasizes change in vivid colors. I shoot multiple exposures over the course of two days or more in order to produce each image, which is created in-camera and on-film with no digital manipulation.
