Electricity, a cornerstone of the modernity, inspires the concept of ‘infinite movement’ in a twisting umbrella. Both mechanical structure and ghost-like shadows weave realism and abstraction together. This also establishes a notion of duration in the image. The rendition of a moving gear looks like an electric current. And the clockwise flow perpetuates the belief that there is no stopping the machine.
What can be considered a photograph taken a century after the height of a modernist movement over century ago is not so old. Both time and motion conjure the energy behind a ticking clock that accelerates the pace of life and can also liberate stillness. Innovation, the radical departure from the universal beliefs that had preceded in the past, is such an iconoclasm. Infinite Movement is printed beautifully on 8×10″ matte paper.
