Philadelphia Museum of Art

In his work, Brooklyn-based artist Tim Hyde investigates the relationship between physical space, time, and perception. He strives to render visible the relation between spaces and the physical interactions they enable, by using architecture as a backdrop. For Hyde, space is perceived and transformed in time, a concept translated through the use of time-based mediums like video and collaged photography. The artist’s close examination of the production of images in film and photography emphasizes the mechanical inadequacy of the camera, turning its technological limitations to his advantage in order to create works that challenge interpretation and question the nature of representation.
