A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.L.P Jack, from his Education Through Recreation, published in 1932.
Photographer John Clang is fascinated by movement in space and time. In his series ‘Time’, he shows a sense of intimate intricacy of how time moves, and how people albeit in a different time, are actually closer to one another and traveling in the same shared space. I found this so interesting, because every time I get on the freeway I cannot help but think about how every single person driving around me are at that same place and point in time with me, yet living totally separate lives.
Here’s a quote from Clang describing his series:
“A series that involves recording a location, to show the passing of time in a montage style. I’ve always been intrigued by the constant subtle changes in my urban environment. Every subtle shift affects my feelings and thoughts, hence my images respond acutely as a poetic reflection of myself in this environment. Working on this series, I explore how time moves in this seemingly static urban space. The people become the moving energy flowing through this space, marking the changes, forming the time.
These images explore my fascination so that there are probably many time dimensions in this universe. We may have a ‘life’ that exists on a different path similarly, one minute before or after the one we’re living now. Merely we just exist in this current dimension, and sometimes when time paths collide, we have déjà vu experience.”
