fleeting moment

Pictures are now routinely viewed on computer screens, not just on paper. This is of course also where video is viewed. Since pictures and video are now viewed on the same media, what was (previously thought of as ‘still’) pictures are no longer tied to static paper or tied to being still.

What pictures are — has changed. 

Does a picture have to stay still all the time? Does video have to move? Where does sound fit? These are some of the questions I am trying to get to grips with through this work. I think of them as sketches. I use a great camera, but the most important thing is that it is small and doesn’t look like a video camera and I can be ready to shoot in seconds, sketching everywhere I go.
