Due in November 2015, this new book published by The Moth House documents an 18-month long collaboration which I undertook with the BMW. The project surveys the fabrication, tooling and assembly of the modern era automobile at BMW’s plant and R&D centers in and around Munich (Germany). However, it also looks beyond the mere referent, representing therefore a point of resistance. Conceived around the simple premise of ‘slowing down time’, this project undertakes an examination and articulation of the world of flux and flow that we live in, a world defined, haunted and consumed by mobility and transience. Symptomatically titled 0:00.00, this series was produced with long exposures of 5 – 45mins. All the images were therefore produced during scheduled and enforced production breaks.
0:00.00 represents the final phase of an overarching project which has engaged with environments as varied as airports, hydropwer plants and space facilities and whose main goal has been to examine and re-evaluate our relationship with technology and industry and its impact on our social and cultural consciousness.
