Adam David Brown
Toronto, Ontario

In "Time-Piece", Adam David Brown has produced a sequence of images that show the moon moving through its 27 different phases, from new moon to crescent to full moon and back again. Time has been compressed so that we can observe all the phases of the moon in a relatively short period of time rather than spread out over the length of a month. "Time-Piece" will appear much larger than if it were observed in nature, giving us an opportunity to look at the moon in a way that we never have before; a larger, faster moon, revealing itself to us again and again, steadily rising and falling.
