While electricity inspires the moving gear of this photograph of a twisting umbrella,
it offers the concept of ‘infinite movement’. Mechanical structure and ghost-like shadows
weave realism and abstraction together. This modernist iconoclasm establishes the notion of
duration like an electric current accelerating the pace of life. Both time and motion
constitutes the moving gear and emanates a feeling of a clock. The innovation is such a
radical departure from the universal as what had preceded in the past. But this modernist
machine liberates stillness that defines times and perpetuates the belief that there is
no stopping the machine.
