In musical context the term syncope means an unexpected variation in the rhythm. It describes a disruption of an otherwise harmonious system. These photographs play with the concept of harmony in the sense that harmony is the balance between temperate tension and tensionless uniformity. Harmony arises where chaos merges with order and order into chaos.

The fluidity and unpredictability of the camera movement against a static backdrop exemplify the interplay of chaos merging into order, resonating with the mind’s search for patterns.
