»narration (amy hempel, tumble home)« by adam frelin
in her short story, “tumble home,” writer amy hempel describes a moment, or rather the possibility of a moment, and the way it has the potential to collapse space and time. wanting to visually depict this line of text, i created a sculptural version of it that was held by four people for two separate photographs on the grounds of chesterwood (the home of sculptor daniel chester french): the first in front of the mansion and the second from the opposite vantage point facing the distant mountains.
both weatherproof photographs are displayed within a double-sided billboard in the exact location from where they were taken. the images depict a moment, possibly an imagined moment, that now exists solely in its sited representation.
