THE VISUAL RESEARCH

From September 29–October 6 I used the New York Times syndicate wire to collected images from Paris’ fashion week. While navigating this site I noticed parallel qualities inherent in the site itself and the images. They both maintain the temporal, while serving a specific purpose in that moment.
The news is constant; fashion is constantly changing. This specificity creates a linear element to experience. I was interested in breaking down that process and reorganizing this linearity as a systematized comparison. I wanted to use this comparison to see the changes being made in relation—not only to time—but each other. This brought up an interesting question for me, “What actually changes over time?” As more images were posted, the less impact any one image had. Why does everything blur together?
The book is designed based on a network of systems. The images have been divided up by color, fashion house and time. The color describes a visual continuity throughout the book. The individual house\'s presence is defined by quantity, represented literally by the image size; more images equals larger images. Finally, clarity is determined by the blurring of images based on when they were posted throughout the week. As time passes the images fade into atmospheric visions.
