PLANAR TIME
Archival print available in multiple sizes
The image, which symbolizes life as a
journey of perseverance, is based on a
photograph of my mother Sara and my
uncle Jack when they were children growing
up in New York City. As you can see the
pony has been made almost invisible,
detected only by a faint outline and the
shadow it casts. Invisible, it becomes a
spirit horse, what the Chinese call a horse
of the wind. In the distance, the children
and the pony are seen again at another
stage of their journey. The work shows
time to be all of one piece rather than just
a series of vanishing moments. Time, as
the fourth dimension, becomes an existing
availability like the three dimensions of
length, width, and height. It too, is a
physical plane on which the children and
the horse traverse and inspires the title,
Planar Time.
