Traversals

I create these spiral images by processing high frame-rate videos. I call them “traversals” because they typically record some kind of journey, either the transit of moving things across the field of view, or a motion of the camera itself over some path. In the latter case, I may be walking with the camera (and thus recording the wobble of steps). Some are taken from the viewpoint of a moving vehicle (a bicycle or car). Each traversal showcases the passage of time, and implies both a landscape as well as a particular pathway through it. Most are available as prints on Aluminum Dibond, starting at $70. Custom sizes are also available.
