Sublime redefines what makes a still life, documenting the passage of time through recontextualizing components of visual art history. Instead, this work considers still-life history to be small passages of time depending on which aspects of the paintings you choose to focus on. Similarly, Sublime recalls times from some of the most defining moments in my life, thinking about recontextualizing a still life with a contemporary voice. Multiple digital clocks flash, cataloged over twenty years, the various times, with different technologies, all the last impressions of moments right before sublime experiences. Shifts of time are represented by the slightest shift in digital clocks, just as they’ve changed throughout time.
