the reverse darkroom

PUZZLING PHOTOGRAPHIC TIME

CLICK TO WATCH: Breakfast (5 mins)
Made on the Thinking through Making workshop
A note on photographic consumption and memory.

In a time of hyper-connectivity, of high-speed image conversations, the Reverse Darkroom provides a place to spend time with material. In this process, exploring the different states of the photograph came to the fore. The ‘instant’ photographic moment is stretched, repeated, studied and in doing so, I can examine how photographs act upon us and how we relate to them. The flat picture becomes a fizzy catalyst in 'real' time, the present to build new relations. What do they preserve?
