In my collage, I'm attempting to capture the essence of time. Time holds different meanings for different people, but one commonality it shares with everyone is that it always flows forward, never backward. My composition features a young person and an older individual afflicted with arthritis. I've employed two distorted clocks to illustrate how time progresses into the future and the consequences that aging imposes on the human body.

In a new paragraph, I've also integrated vintage cameras that capture film. I've arranged them to resemble salmon swimming upstream, symbolizing the resurgence of film in the world of photography. Many of the images in this collage draw inspiration from the works of Salvador Dali and Man Ray. Their art shares a common theme: ordinary items becoming distorted, such as the melting clocks in Dali's famous painting or photograph, and in Man Ray's self-portrait titled "Distortion."
