Time Markers: Rachelle at Cafe Europa
In 2006, Andy Grundberg curated an exhibit of Time Markers at the District of Columbia Arts Center. He wrote: “To make the pictures in “Time Markers,” McKaig photographed a number of workplaces both with a pinhole camera and with a digital camera set to take a metered sequence of exposures over time. Arrayed in grid form, the digital images create unexpected, mysterious patterns and bring to mind both Eadweard Muybridge’s late 19th-century locomotion studies and Frank and Lillian Gilbreth’s early 20th-century time-motion studies.
McKaig is less interested in the science or economics of how we move through time than he is fascinated by visual representations that encompass human presence and its shadowy other, absence. Part of what animates his work is a sense of temporality that one might interpret in terms of mortality.”
