Walking in Circles
These images are superimposed digital photographs of circular journeys. Opacity adjustments on each layer create a composite image where details dissipate and meld to produce an image with faint traces of each singular photograph, creating an implied sense of the cumulative journey. Much like a short film compressed to a single frame, details disappear and in their place only an impression persists.
'Walking in Circles' converts the linear journey to a circular one; it is said that without visual references, one lost in a desert, forest, etc. travels in circles. In this series I attempt to translate the metaphor of walking in circles--wandering with subjects ranging from the mundane to the marvelous--into a reflective, meditative visual narrative.
