Asma Belhamar's Irreversible View explores visualization of space through time: codifying the irrational language of the presence of architectural structures while challenging the rational language of architectural structures. In this work, the experience of "passing by" in a moving vehicle causes a sense of visual distortion for the viewer, one that is parallel to the experience that motion produces under other circumstances- with a rapid alteration in how surrounding structures viewed as though they are being compressed through time, succumbing to the fragility of transitory and pracarious moments experienced by the onlooker in transit. In this work, motion inspires Belhamar to create ephemeral and fragile moments in which the flat structure starts to evolve into a multi-surfaced object while in motion, as if the artist is drawing the seconds in layered frames to capture the magical phenomena of the ever-shifting present.
