My own immersion in music, the arcane and indeed ecclesiasticism led to impressions of an understanding of time travel. Using a knowledge of the physics of chordal structures, and based on a new principle uncovered, involving musical frequencies, harmonic resonance and the relationship of these things with the astral plane, it is believed that a time machine was constructed which is claimed by its maker to have allowed photographs to be taken of the past. Such images were gained by an approach and perspective significantly removed from any dependance on s^2=x^2+y^2+z^2-ct^2 where s stands for space-time and a Lorentz transformation invariant, ie the distance has the same value for all inertial observers. That space and time are aspects of the same thing, and that matter and energy are also two aspects of the same thing (E=mc^2), is nonetheless invaluable to all potential builders of time machines. My canvas adopts the milk float of yesterday as the potential time machine, combined with a visual concept of space. Venice-based Father Ernetti incorporated rather more than theoretical physics into his calculations when inventing his time machine camera that could focus into the past or future and take pictures of events from the time visited. My career as a professional photographer, life-long involvement in music, and later embrace of ecclesiasticism made the Benedictine monk’s approach to time travel at once comprehensible and something I naturally felt empathetic toward. Whether it was, is, or ever could be a reality, is not something I would conjecture  ― for I have already experienced enough to know that all manner of things are possible.

Carmel revisited using mixed media, including original Sixties' portraiture taken at my studio using a plate camera and employing vintage methods. The female subject modelled for me circa 1967-1968.
