Sum Of Many Parts

Sum Of Many Parts

Sum of Many Parts (SOMP) refers to the stages in which the scrolling photograph was made and that it is displayed in stages. Through a durational encounter with the work and each iteration or segment that is on view, the viewer has access to the work as a whole (164 feet). In this way the installation points to the futurity of the very large photograph. To view the work at any given moment, it appears static, but even as one sees it in its emergent unified form the viewer becomes aware that the image was different in the past, and will be different in the future in that what is presented within the scrolling work has shifted. The hint of this resides in what is visible at the top of the image that remains visible when scrolled through to the next section at the ‘bottom’ of the photographic work.  The convergence of these temporal states reflects the conceptual element of the photographic image: it is a synthesis of the photographic act, object and experience. This piece was composed inside a darkroom where all the gestural interventions were recorded invisibly with no immediate visual feedback as to their placement.
