Enter AAU Faculty Marc Ullom. As a way to challenge our sense of time and place, Ullom braved a series of self-portraits in abandoned spaces. Ullom says of this project, called Transcience of Self:
My physical presence intrudes upon these places, and interjects an energy of temporality that contrasts with the environment. This interaction between living flesh and decaying environment provides the viewer with a strong desire to identify the relationship between the figure and environment and at the same time causes them to ask questions that have no singular answer.
