Tripoli Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of unique prints and 16mm film projections by Tin Ojeda. The solo exhibition entitled Don't Waste My Time will be on view from September 29 – October 29, 2012, with an opening reception for the artist on September 29th from 5 – 8 pm.

Ojeda captures the arbitrary – and sometimes absurd – anxiety attached to time. His prints focus on the clock as an object in a series using 8 x 10 large format film and a silver gelatin printing process. He will present six still photographs of hanging clocks frozen in the ticking of time, some paradoxically capturing several seconds in one instant. These photographs, which he manipulates in the dark room, depict the cultural symbol that has become so mythologized. 

In a series of 16mm film portraits, Ojeda asked subjects to sit for a portrait as the camera captures them over the course of several minutes. In this way, Ojeda's subjects are exposed in a manner that is far more revealing than what would be in a single snapshot. His portraits aim to immortalize a moment in a life; a vignette that will remain unchanged as time passes.
