‘Assemblage of an Instant’ is an installation of intaglio prints and a stop-frame film of 450 cinematic stills. It explores the possibility of capturing, recognising and assembling a moment in time. These elements are presented in a numerically logical culmination of imagery sequentially displayed around the full circumference of the room, as vision in motion. Here the single picture loses its separate identity and becomes a part of an assembly; a structural component of a whole, which is an element in itself. Exploring both the instant and the past, the moment captured in the image is of no particular duration and can never be repeated. At the same time the viewing of a still can be extended as long as the fascination lasts, thus dictating the spectator’s perception of a moment through the arrangement of sequence and imagery.
