Subjectively, you can experience my ride, both as I take and narrate a ‘version’ of it (text below / image titles), whilst objectively you see the journey from the camera’s perspective as it captures and compacts these moments into a single space-time, to be observed and interpreted by the viewer. This can be better described as "their state of temporality”, each segment of time has been captured, accumulated, frozen. It now exists both in the past and in the present, locked within these images.
I had the bike and camera rigged in different ways as I iterated, experimenting with capturing myself on the bike, the journey seen over the handlebars and the vista alone.
The project title "Ghost Bike" refers to my mountain bike, which is a Ghost ASX1100, but also refers to the 'ghostly otherliness' of the cyclists captured in the process.
The poetic verse I created references the images in order of capture, as I cycled a specific route, and describes both the image and the journey. Those familiar with cycle routes in London will be able to tell where this journey took place! (It's a well known CS route!).
