Change is something we all experience on a daily basis. Nothing stays the same from moment to moment and we learn to adapt to the flux of life. As significant transitions occur we realize how difficult change can be. For the past couple years my work, whether I knew it at the time or not, has been focused on the ideas of impermanence and change. Each series has been a discovery, each time a new question was asked and another study made. The series that directly preceded these grids were moments of transition, showing the implied presence of someone in moment but out of the frame, as they threw back the shower curtain or hurried up the stairs. It was not enough to look at a moment of transition. I needed to find the most basic definition of change, to break the transition down even more. With the grids I was able to do that. Change can only exist in a comparative state. We see change when we notice one moment is unlike another, even in a small way. When we strive to understand such a complex and abstract idea we need to break it down in an approachable way, for me that meant using photography in a meditative and focused way. I called these grids meditations. For me, they are exactly that. They do not focus on any one object, but rather on the moment as it shifts. They are the continuing of a focus on the nature of impermanence. Without this focus on the most basic characteristic, we can’t truly understand the nature of change.
