Temporal Form by Ansen Seale

Temporal Form is a project by visual artist Ansen Seale that employs a technique known as slitscan photography. From Ansen Seale‘s website:

It is important to understand that these images are not manipulated.
This is the way my camera sees the world.

Rather than suspending a single moment, my photography examines the passage of time. To accomplish this, I invented a modern digital version of the panoramic camera. In my version, a single sliver of space is imaged over an extended period of time, yielding the surprising result that unmoving objects are blurred and moving bodies are rendered clearly. The model in the studio must move in order to be captured.

In the Water series, the stones in the river do not move, and so,
become stripes. The water flowing past them perturbs their static
image, creating a kind of color field painting. This is no trick. This is photography in the purist sense, but a form of photography where abstraction is the norm, not the exception.
