Time and stillness

Movement and stillness are broad concepts that intersect different philosophical ideas, and connections between daily life, art and perception. This practice-led research project investigates movement in dance, movement in the stillness of sculpture, and the physical and corporeal act of painting to question the distinction between movement and stillness. Perceptual ambiguity and stillness in painting are explored to reveal the passing of time and movement felt in daily life. Images, conceptual movements and emotion are juxtaposed to create a dynamic spatial intervention, expressing personal aesthetic visions about physical and psychological space and time. This is to propose that the act of contemplation of the surroundings constitutes space, and that engaging with space consequently becomes a temporal activity.
