STUDIO ELAPSED TIME
MONUMENT MOMENTO (2020) is a sister series to PERFECT STRANGER (2018).
Words engraved on stone stand as blocks of compressed time in an emotionality of shades. The work draws from distilled conversations belonging to a year-long Q&A project with a stranger, an Israeli Psychologist, in 2016. Every day, the Psychologist would ask a question, and the Artist would respond. Over time, this process of inquisition and disclosure unveiled an intimate tapestry of fact and fiction. Like little keys, the words inscribed on each block of stone, unlock a memory belonging to a particular day that year, forming a physical and narrative time-capsule of passing moments.
