Research Task 2 – Temporal Expressions

Time and Relativity


The task I have next been set it to use the theme “CYCLE” to unify my experiments in the following:

1. create a joiner image in the style of David Hockney

2. produce creative photo-images which exploit long exposure

3. produce creative photo images or sequences which exploit short exposure

David Hockney reference

In this joiner by David Hockney he has tried to create a cubism effect out of 24 Polaroid prints.

David Hockney produced photographs in the form of joiners because he was interested in portraying space and time and how others would view the same image. He was highly intrigued by the way in which we can turn the 3D world into a 2D photograph.  He was interested in “how perspective is used in western art and how space is treated differently in non-western art.”

Dr. Harold Edgerton- 1903-1990

Dr. Edgerton was the first to take high-speed color photographs and was a pioneer of multiflash and microsecond imagery, which he used to take detailed photographs of hummingbirds in motion, as well as the progression of athletes’ movements.

He was best known for his “speedlight” photography to stop motion on film.
