Photolucida: Brad Carlile: Tempus Incognitus
This series has conceptual underpinnings. The rooms are depersonalized to invite a narrative. I have rules that combine the element of chance in these environments with predetermined rules that provide underlying parameters for this process. I use a time-intensive technique that captures the evolution of light and emphasizes change in vivid colors. Each image is composed of 3-9 exposures. Only the light in the room is used to create the images – no colored bulbs or gels are used. I shoot only at pre-determined times in the day and don’t allow myself to wait for perfect light, I must adjust to the particular light given the confines of this schedule.
This technique highlights change with color allowing us to see time in ways we are not accustomed. This sublime view moves the horizons of our understanding and takes us outside the limited range of our senses and default assumptions about the world.
