Space is filled and people are bustling. We rush and get insensitive to the outer. A unique way of slit- scan photography may convert this particular life into another visual explanation. However, we may not see it clearly in the infinite timeline, but only distorted faces and trivial matters. In the end, we may fall into another void again.
Slit-scan photography was an ancient photographic technique. It was widely used in race course as a time-visual recorder. Its flatten and distorted visual caught my eyes, as it brings us a “perspectiveless” viewing experience and expands a dialogue in the formation of time and space in photography. However, the length of photographic materials was limited in the old days, but the latest computing technology frees it, and allows me to interpret the infinite routine along the graphical timeline.
