For this project I chose to impose the concept of time onto my photographs. When printing in the darkroom, rather than testing and trying to figure out the correct aperture and exposure time for my images, I decided that the exact time I captured the image would determine the aperture and exposure time needed to print.
When looking at examples for these projects I enjoyed seeing the images that had a little hit within them that gave away a bit of how the image was made. I incorporated this aspect into my work as well by moving my paper the same amount of seconds it was exposed for. This way the viewer could count how many times the image repeated and would have a better understanding of the time of day I took the image and how long I exposed it for when printing.
I thought a great deal about what my images would be of and how they would all relate to each other. I decided to focus on one long amount of time sitting in one spot like a car ride. But as I began to print, I came to the realization that since I had no flexibility in the printing process, the subject of my images seemed less important. To be able to visualize the concept of time imposing itself on darkroom technology, soon became the purpose of my photographs.
