I distill ZOOM into three interpretations: Introspection, Time, and Motion. Each piece is designated to a category based on what element is most strongly represented, but all three aspects are present throughout. ZOOM is dynamic and exploratory, a muted momentum. It’s celebratory and castigating, like picking zits and wasting energy.


Whether it’s physical examination or thoughtful contemplation, the relationship to the self is magnified and occasionally contorted.


Your 5 minutes is actually 3 hours, but a second is excruciating. Relativity expands and contracts, a gelatinous blob or a camera lens.


Literal movement implies action, but not necessarily awareness. And now my shirt is stained.
