From Ian Ruhter:
In the process of preparing the time machine, I had no idea this would become one of the most extraordinary journeys to date. It would propel me into the future where I meet Chase Jarvis, one of the greatest photographers of all time. It would then send me back in time to meet with my old friend, Peter Line, the best snowboarder of this era.
All of a sudden I found myself in the present, making a picture of Ishmael Butler from the Diggable Planets. I had travelled the way you would in a dream, taking me backward into the future. A future where you paint with silver and light.
Not so long ago, four stars were created, and they each started on their own separate journeys through the universe. Astronomers once thought the chance of stars colliding was roughly once in an eternity. For this to happen in our lifetime, would be a rare and remarkable event. If scientists could predict these collisions in the future, does this mean their paths are pre-determined?
In my journey through life, it was never clear if my path was pre-determined, or if I had the ability to alter my own destiny. I would like to believe that my journey through this universe has already been mapped out. If so, then building this camera, and meeting these incredible people has been no accident, and this explains the theory that everything happens for a reason. Are we all part of a bigger picture?
