Inga explained “Basically these pictures are the story of a walk down a path. I filmed the walk and then extracted some stills as little moments on the way. I used the woodcutting process to extend the moment. This is a reaction to the speed of life and the hectic pace that technology has brought.
I recorded my regular walk at Hardcastle Craggs near Hebden Bridge, which is my personal moment of peace and antidote to stress. Although I used digital photography for the filming I then used traditional and slower processes for the printmaking.
I used cherry wood, the wood the Japanese woodcutters use, and invested a great deal of time in capturing a flickering moment. This is quite physically demanding and tough on your hands. I called it From an instant to 1680 minutes because this is how long the cutting took.
In modern life we don’t concentrate on anything for very long. My work is a reaction to that pressure. It is time to slow everything down and devote more thought and time to what we do.”
