Accelerating Sequence - Artists respond to time and Aging - Curated by Dan Talley. MOCA Ga Georgia Atlanta USA - Jan 2005

Lloyd Godman's "Timed Lapse," elegant and complex, is so oblique in its juxtaposition of growing plants and digital photos gallery visitors take of themselves that it takes the viewer to figure out its relation to time and natural processes. From: MOCA muses on realities, ironies of growing old

In the mid 1990s, Godman made the connection that the process of taking photographs with film and growing plants was analogous - both use light and water - plants are in fact an abstract form of photography. In 1996 he began by growing simple images into the leaves of Bromeliad plants which in turn led to sophisticated interactive installations. Working with plants traces the development of this work.

Lloyd Godman's twin careers of serious and successful organic gardener and practicing artist of great creative energy converge in new and constantly surprising ways to make art about the ecological concerns that underly his gardening. Over almost three decades his art has widened out from relatively traditional landscape photography to include elements of performance, audience participation art and multimedia installation to explore the tensions between electronic consumer society and the ecosystem.
