Through mechanical vision, we are able to observe what our eyes perpetually do whilst looking; focus. Our eye processes the subject of our attention so quickly that we normally don't notice iit happening; an interval occurs between looking and seeing. An interval is often understood as a moment of pause, a wait for something to happen, a space in time. Time can be perceived at different rates, but can never be stilled; the interval is never empty of a happening. Interval I examines focal range with an extreme slowness, extending the nuances to make each shift visible.


Observing moments in which nothing appears to happen, focused attention reveals the tension between stillness and movement.
