Daniel Brown


The past and the future are mutually elusive. We interpret them through fragmentary evidence and the projection of hypotheses, creating historical fictions and science factions by the processing and the communication of multiple threads of information; weaving them into a coherent tapestry. However when we speak of these things it is almost always in the abstract. One cannot feel yesterday's rain on one's face or see tomorrow's moon with one's eyes. When we describe these things we are really engaging in some sort of internal colloquy with a stored image inside our brains. My work for the Onsite Project is concerned with the nature of this abstraction, how we process the information available to us in the present to create images of the past and future.
