The Human Race

Time Based Forms

In my major work, I aim to capture the child within us all and the concept of growth. I was inspired by an artwork entitled La Vie Impossible de C.B (2001) by Christian Boltanski in which he attempted to represent his entire life using documents and photos.

I have incorporated this idea into my own artmaking practice in which I have created a video that encapsulates these concepts. There are two key components of my artwork. A time lapse-style video of photos taken throughout my life is overlaid and intertwined by a clip of a person running down a deserted suburban street. By creating this artwork, I hope to present the dichotomous relationship between inner youth and ageing.
