Explosive Motion

Amelia Falk Art Statement move·ment noun 1. the act, process, or result of moving. 2. a particular manner or style of moving. In physics, motion is a change in position of an object with respect to time. Motion is typically described in terms of velocity, acceleration, displacement and time.[1] Motion is observed by attaching a frame of reference to a body and measuring its change in position relative to another reference frame. As there is no absolute frame of reference, absolute motion cannot be determined.[2] Thus, everything in the universe can be considered to be moving. Lately I have been very interested in capturing the state of motion. Whether I choose to show the blur which indicates the speed of the action or freeze it completely, there is always a hint of what has occurred. This may be shown through the folds in a dress or some other material which captures and makes visible the passage of air that happens during a movement.
