Fragmented Object is a sequence of four photographs—each 12 x 12” (305 x 305mm)—inkjet printed and face-mounted on plexiglass.
This work is one of the fifteen sequences, which belong to a large series of photographic work titled Objects in Motion. The series has been executed in the technique of digital slit-scan imaging with a unique camera built specifically for that purpose. The camera records time-based events—between 20 and 90 seconds in duration—in the form of static images. A single sequence of images consists of multiple photographic prints, ranging from three to twenty five images, each depicting a moving object.
The title of the entire series refers to the late nineteenth century chronophotography and the work of Eadweard Muybridge at the University of Pennsylvania (1884–1887), culminating in two books published in London, Animals in Motion (1899) and The Human Figure in Motion (1901).
