These Layers of Time Were Created by Arranging Photos on Acrylic

Japanese artist Nobuhiro Nakanishi has a project titled Layer Drawings that creatively uses photography to explore time, space, and 3D art installations. Each piece is a series of photos on a series of transparent acrylic sheets.

For each piece, Nakanishi photographs one scene over a certain period of time. He then prints the photos on transparent film and mounts them to acrylic panels in chronological order, allowing the differences in the frames to be seen when looking through multiple layers.

“We are all subject to the passing of time, yet each of us feels and perceives it in our own way,” writes Nakanishi on his website. “Time itself has no shape or boundary and cannot be fixed or grasped. When we look at the photographs in these sculptures, we attempt to fill in the gaps between the individual images. We draw from our physical experiences to fill in missing time and space, both ephemeral and vague. In this series, I attempt to depict time and space as sensations shared by both viewer and artist.”
