Ace Gallery presents a selection of photographic artworks by Jay Mark Johnson spanning four series: Motion Studies, Anachronistic Nature, Topological Shifts, and Spacetime Cityscapes and Landscapes. Johnson produces photographic images that challenge the norms of perception. Employing a process that is distinct from conventional photography, he creates works that merge the recording of space and time into a single, linear “spacetime” continuum. The resulting photographs are akin to both seismographs and electrocardiograms in that, as timelines, they begin on the left and end on the right. The horizontal length of the image conveys an uninterrupted and fluid measurement of a brief span of time, varying in duration from 10 seconds up to 45 minutes.
