At one time, my studio was around the corner from a bridge that spanned the confluence of two interstates. Sometimes I would take a break and stand on the bridge and photograph the drivers. I used these images to create 3 different mutoscopes. Somewhat like a flipbook, mutoscopes are a historical predecessor to cinema and create the illusion of movement through the rapid presentation of a series of stills. The viewer's expectation is motion and action, but the subjects go nowhere. Each image is is nearly identical but the individuals and their dramas vary widely. The experience of time is
cyclical rather than linear.
