Both artists utilise their time-based practices to create works that reflect their personal histories, connections and the ties that bind to the past, present and future.

And they all say your name acts as a space for all of these oppositional structures to meet; the passing of time and memory, the spaces between, and the growing distance naturally created between people expressed through the temporal qualities of light.
