Jon Tarry | Catching the Moment

The images in Jon Tarry’s series Catching the Moment are records of a number of locations seen during The Artist in Residency at SEA Foundation (AiR Tilburg). Present in each image is a crumpled piece of paper, digitally edited into the picture as if it is almost coincidentally passing the lens.

Serving as potential, the piece of paper is a starting point of possibilities for unknown destinations, or as Terry states:

“A sheet of crumpled paper is carried through the air. The inscribed may be an itinerary, a shopping list, a poem, notes of a musical score, a parking infringement, a love letter, artist brief, set of instructions, or completely blank. The papers flight path is indeterminate, where it lands is unknown.” 

Catching the Moment raises the question: Was the moment witnessed or is there more than meets the eye?
