The word ‘passage’ alludes to movement between and within time, space and place. It can be considered in philosophical metaphorical and physical terms.
‘The Density of Time’ consists of accumulated marks with variations in size, pressure and materials, indicative of the changing states of mind of its maker.

Yet the materiality of the work grounds us firmly in the cycle of nature where growth and decay are the only possible outcomes of the passage of time.
