"I employ different strategies to integrate and contrast recorded images with those. . generated in the present. By constructing a mechanism which creates an image in the. . presence of the viewer rather than only presenting a recorded document, imagery can be both consistent in form and chaotic. The small infinite variables that is the nature of an image created live by an analogue allows for a unique experience. As expressed by Plato in his allegory of the cave, we experience unique relationships to the thing and to its image.
The event of recording an image is the result of an artist’s interaction with the. . mechanisms of the process and the subject at a moment that passes to be viewed as a. . document in the present. Viewing a recorded image is like that of looking out the rear. . window of a car and seeing the landscape recede into the distance. By taking the viewer into a moment through an installation that includes both a document and a live event their gaze is directed out the side of the car into the window of another traveling in the same direction." - Michael Bosworth, 2020. . . .
