Polaroids

Given the unknown state of Polaroid materials at the moment (with rumours of new versions from 'The Impossible Project' and Fuji Film), I thought I'd put up these images... They are scans of the discarded section of Polaroid films... as is sometimes the case, they can be more interesting than the image that was 'peeled off'...









And for another type of Polaroid material, here are some manipulated Polarooid SX-70 images ... these were manipulated by 'squishing' the developing image with a knitting needle or something similar... this moved the liquid chemicals around, leading to a sort od 'impressionistic' image ...

Scanner composition 3

Seem to be back to experimenting with some of the scans I have been making recently ...
It is all related to some notion of an archive ( the objects used are part of a very large 'collection' that I have stored in my studio), and I have been playing with various layouts. Some of the trials resemble vertical panels, as if they are some kind of archeological 'dig', but I haven't been that convinced that the aesthetics are right yet. This new version is more random and with further refinements looks like it might be heading in the right direction...

And...

Another image from the archive... taken in an old factory in Dawson St. (same place as in prior posts...'Numbers')




Barbed Wire and Rust

Found these pics while checking through old archives. They were made while visiting a friend's farm on a weekend outing some time ago...
