Past Time Is Finite, Future Time Is Infinite
Kathleen Herbert, 2015
Series of 11 Giclee prints on Hahnemuhle German Etch pape, Edition of 5
Past Time Is Finite, Future Time Is Infinite are a series of collages created from; archive slides of the buildings now under Kielder water, digital stills of the area as it is now, postcards of the area and scans of the stumps of felled trees from the forest. Taking the physicality of film as a starting point, the images take on a the form of film frames and form of timelines. Gradually the strict confines of the one image and frame become blurred as another image another timeline encroaches on what is already visible. As the works progress so parts of the images are removed or obscured just as the areas history and buildings have been.
