In the darkroom, a reflection on light

Lecture Performance at ‘We are the (Epi)center…’ at P!
New York, Nov 19th 2016

In association with the exhibition
‘We are the Center for Curatorial Studies’ curated by Paul O’Neill at the Hessel Museum of Art, Bard College, NY.

Creating an unfolding record - the actual materialisation of a document - two Polaroid photographs taken, one of the audience and one of the speaker, visibly developed over the 45 minute duration of the lecture. The lecture considered the nature of time and photography and was centred around a screening of 'A reflection on light'.

“Earlier we made a decision, attempting to correlate the event here with images taken of the event. Currently we are still in the middle of this event, still talking, still here together, still in a netherworld of light and chemicals on paper that are still in process, still forming in this present, still making a document of an event that is still developing in time…”
