Movement PortraitsBack to Portfolios
Actualized through custom Processing software, Movement Portraits are photographic composites that depict pedestrian movement through a sliver of urban space. Time in each of the Movement Portraits is represented—literally—from the left side of the image to right (for example, the left-most edge represents 12:00:00, and the right-most edge represents 12:00:03). As a result, static elements recorded are repeated in thin vertical slivers causing a horizontal streaking affect. Moving elements such as pedestrians, pass through the sliver being recorded, and are rendered as recognizable figures.
