John Clang’s art is a bewildering timescape of distinct strangers sharing space in an ordinary urban landscape. Capturing a fascinating perspective of movement across space and time, “Time” is a series of montage-style images recording people on the street in the same location over a period. The time-spatial distortion experienced by his subjects coupled with his keen abstract aesthetics create coherent nostalgic images that tickle the philosophical and romantic imagination. Are we somehow closer to others in our environment across varying time because of the real space we share?
