Entry Description: Traces over time: I first begame interested in the transitory nature of information when I read HG Wells, The Time Machine, as a child. When I am sitting at Starbucks, I wonder how many people have inhabited or will inhabit the same part of space at a different time. I have wanted to convey this in a single image - traces over time - space frozen and time fluid. These images express this. The images are single exposure Ultraviolet images. The camera was moved at least once during the exposure.

Story: Traces over time: I first begame interested in the transitory nature of information when I read HG Wells, The Time Machine, as a child. When I am sitting at Starbucks, I wonder how many people have inhabited or will inhabit the same part of space at a different time. I have wanted to convey this in a single image - traces over time - space frozen and time fluid. These images express what I visualize. The images are single exposure Ultraviolet images. The camera was moved at least once during the exposure. The title represents the space time coordinates: date and zip code

About the Artist:

I have undergraduate degrees in psychology and electrical engineering, a PhD in Electrophysics, and have studied Zen. I took some photography courses a few years ago at Corcoran College of Art in Washington, DC and discovered my true passion - photography. More recently, I have been experimenting with "unconscious", intuitive photography - photographing with the heart. I have exhibited in over 80 exhibitions in the past two years in many places including Virginia, Texas, Colorado, Miami, Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, Nevada, Cincinnati, New Orleans, Tucson, Madrid and Paris.
