Exhibition: Time Machines by Ellie Young
Gold Street Gallery. Trentham East. Victoria
until 25 January 2015
Time is part of the fundamental structure of the universe. An intellectual structure within which mankind sequence and compare events. time is neither an event nor a thing, not itself measurable nor can it be travelled.
But these time machines are beautiful things, measured by their fine crafted forms. Built with care and precision, they gracefully age holding a sense of intrigue for the time they have travelled, and events they have measured for man.
These images are captured on 8 x 10 sheet film using varying degrees of magnification to explore surface contour and texture.
The hand coated salted paper photographs render a feeling of the timelessness, faithful to the magnetism of these magnificent time machines.
