Take ten minutes out of your day to drop down the temporal rabbit hole of this artist's video works, showing at inner city gallery Anna Schwartz

Melbourne-based artist Daniel Crooks (Phantom Ride – ACMI 2016) uses analogue film and splicing techniques to create video works that 'physicalise' time, turning it into a visible and malleable material. One moment in time is spread across space, elongated and distorted... The result is uncanny but sensuous – reality slowed down and liquified.

In this latest exhibition, he the idea of time as cyclical, focusing his camera on revolving doors in Melbourne's CBD and turning slices of time on an axis informed by sine waves and parabolas.
