THE VERTIGO OF TIME

The Vertigo of Time, by photographer Phyllis B. Dooney, looks at the convergence of the past and present day where all systems and individuals are part of a collective continuum, imbued with both ethereal and concrete inscriptions from the past. It presents a tapestry of everyday black American lives, then and now: business owners, activists, veterans, cooks, farmers, musicians, congregates, mothers and fathers. In photographs, a moving image piece and an audioscape*, The Vertigo of Time renders a prismatic consciousness; here we find a storied history of the Durham area, collectively, in the voices of the descendants from Historic Stagville’s enslaved population.
