Time Is a Dimension by Singapore-based photographer Fong Qi Wei is a series of landscapes shot from single vantage points over a period of 2 to 4 hours at sunset or sunrise, digitally sliced up and reassembled into layered ‘timelapse’ collages that illustrate the passage of time. Sez he:
The basic structure of a landscape is present in every piece. But each panel or concentric layer shows a different slice of time, which is related to the adjacent panel/layer. The transition from daytime to night is gradual and noticeable in every piece, but would not be something you expect to see in a still image.
Similarly, our experience of a scene is more than a snapshot. We often remember a sequence of events rather than a still frame full of details. In this series, I strive to capture both details and also a sequence of time in a single 2 dimensional canvas.
