Pauses and movements: the melody of vision - Guilherme Ghisoni

According to the philosopher Frank Ramsey, when we represent a time series in a spatialized form, we subtract of the temporal quality of the series (when we represent, for example, time as a line). In photography, this subtraction occurs in at least two ways: (i) the way in which the photographic cut freezes movement; and (ii) the way in which photographic film simultaneously represents what has been experienced successively. In this new work entitled "Pauses and Movements: The Melody of Vision," I seek to restore temporal quality in the visual experience of the photograph by guiding the look through pauses and movements within the image - as moments of a melody to be followed.

This brings photography closer to a musical score, through which we can guide vision through time.
