The strategic placement of objects can determine the meaning an artwork assumes. This distance can refer to a physical length, a period of time/duration or an assessment based on other criteria in which the actions are simultaneous.
Distance between actions is a guideline deciding the time allowed for the work to take place. The manipulation of distance and time becomes a method through which the work is presented to the viewer. Both temporal and linear distances are factors affecting work outcome.
In this body of work, an action, length of time, distance and situation transform into objects or spaces. Photography and video are utilized as a stage on which the dialog between the factors/parts is displayed.
