This is part of a series of images that began with screen captures from a couple of Fred & Ginger movies. The reinterpretation of the images, combined with music that crosses genres, explores the themes of memory & time, and how the constructed realities of Mass Media become a metaphor for the relationship between our linear existence and spacetime.
We use Mass Media to enhance and manipulate memory, altering our experience of events. We relive events through Mass Media, and we create new experiences through forms of Mass Media that suggest another time and place. In 1895, H.G. Wells in his novel, The Time Machine, reflected on the concept of spacetime, “There is no difference between Time and any of the three dimensions of Space except that our consciousness moves along it”. He added, “Scientific people…know very well that Time is only a kind of Space.”
