Devoid of any actual moving image, StillMoving rests in the space between cinema and photography, and reflects Deleuze’s theory of the time-image; ‘an image in which time ceases to be subordinate to movement and appears for itself.’ The movement stems from action, rather than relying on a motion picture; and becomes a still image where movement is propelled by the viewer.
Focus is taken away from the cinematic and given back to the photographic.
An image may only ever be a representation; never the actual thing it is depicting, never the ‘truth’ as it was once believed to be. Perhaps the only actuality to which the image can be assigned is its indexical factor; that it is no more ‘real’ than the silver emulsion on paper, or the pixel on a screen. StillMoving aims to highlight this falsified reality.

Everything is ready-almost-for installation.
The transparency is on the acrylic (applied tediously with water and a squeegie) and cut to the right size (by the amazing people at absolutely plastics) and now awaits installation, which will hopefully begin tomorrow.
The next step is building a support wall to house the lightboxes, and following that will be installing the photographs. At the moment I'm exploring either hanging them or fitting a frame with spacers around them to hold them in place.
I can't take the backing paper off the photographs yet so it is hard to determine the right spacing. working on it!
