Waves Infront

"Waves infront" is a 16mm black and white film projection that reflects on the captivatingly slow breaking of waves. The work explores the ways in which photographic technologies reveal details of the world and raises questions about how time is a material in photography. The crashing of the waves was captured with a modern high-speed camera, which recorded 800 frames per second, and then transformed into the now-obsolete black and white film. The inspiration for the work came from a 1903 study by Albert Londe, a pioneer of chronophotography, which focused on the motion of waves, considered too abstract by Londe's contemporaries.
