“How does one portray movement, or a weightless or a formless object? It is probably the most complicated task that photography has been trying to cope with since the early history of its development. It is clear that the photography media does not register the moment in which the duration of movement becomes an eternalized object expanded through the flow of time. Though photography immortalizes only a fraction of a second, which is a fraction of the movement, yet this difference that exists between a photographic and a cinematographic frame does not prevent us from imagining and reflecting on an ongoing and perhaps never-ending movement and the phenomenon of movement in general. These thoughts on an object that is weightless, formless and frozen in the moment of movement have been provoked in my mind by the international artistic duo – Lithuanian Žilvinas Kropas and Argentinian Guillermo Alvarez. They have been developing the photographic cycle Amorfo for some time now”.
