Tim Burroughs

the re-workings of memory/cinematography

 

 

1.

shadows in a sea of forgetting

fading photos in film that no one sees

 

2.

a book covered in dust

in a library threatened with closure

 

3.

a disappearing face in a portrait painting with cracked features and fading colours

 

4.

a string quartet that plays

whilst the music scores are blown away

 

5.

snippets of conversation

echoing in a square that was blitzed

 

6.

sentences that curl back across a page

reeling in their meaning

stuttering into silence

 

7.

an actor on stage

mute and static

in a play without lines

in a burn out of celluloid

on the cutting room floor

 

8.

a flash that freezes a space

inside a pin camera

the eye at in the viewfinder is you

but who are you and why you are there?
