Time Is A Dimension by Fong Qi Wei

Singapore-based photographer Fong Qi Wei (previously here and here) created a series of landscapes, seascapes and cityscapes photos, titled 'Time is a dimension', composite of several photos over a 2-4 hours period, digitally slicing the images to create a layered collage.

"I work in the confines of a photographic print, because I like to do so. But in a way, I wanted to break out of this restriction of a single slice of time in photography."

"Photographic prints are great because they don’t need power to be displayed. They are more or less permanent. Videos are great because they record a sequence of time which shows reality almost like how we experience. Is it possible to combine the two? And not via long exposure photography where often details are lost from motion. So I played around with the tools of digital photography and post processing to give you this series: Time is a dimension."

"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. I hope it gives you pause and reconsider what you experience versus what you shoot with your next camera phone."
