This series is inspired from Gaston Bachelard's book ' The Poetics of Space' In which Bachelard explains his focus on the poetic image for it being the property of the innocent consciousness, something which precedes conscious thought, and is the direct product of the soul. This direct relation of poetry to reality, for Bachelard, intensifies the reality of perceived objects.
The images below capture ephemeral moments in which a space is altered into a newly defined dimension through a combination of light and shadow. This physical composition comes to life for a few seconds before it shifts or disappears into an alternate state - the reality of the fleeting moment becoming nothing more then a past memory.
“Therefore, the places in which we have experienced day dreaming reconstitute themselves in a new daydream, and it is because our memories of former dwelling-places are relived as day-dreams these dwelling-places of the past remain in us for all the time.” ― Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space
