Blake Peterson creates narrative based work that integrates photography & print media, video, performance, and sound to focus on transient episodes of time. The great ‘triumph’ or ‘fall’ of the subjects is never shown, and these ethereal moments contain the multitude of possibilities, unencumbered by the restraints of causation. The tension between ideals and their actualization is never truly resolved. The future, the past, and the present exist simultaneously.
By extrapolating from these narrative structures, larger themes can be processed, where the omission of information is as important as the story itself. The restriction of data leads viewers to fill in the missing gaps. Seemingly objective information is supplanted with one’s assumptions and biases.
