Dark Spots / Light Thoughts
2015 - 2016
photographic collage, cyanotype tinted with tannic acid
The photographic collages use a photo of sea shell curved in a flexible mirror. The original images were printed in cyanotype process in 2013 and since then, they are developed in multiple composition based on contact coping of one frame.
The first part of “Dark Spots / Light Thoughts” ( exhibition - 2015, the fridge gallery) concepts photography as a medium providing sharp focus in deep areas and questions the process of demystification.The sequence unfolds in parts and substitutes “the end” with “an exit”.
The second part of “Dark Spots / Light Thoughts” - "untitled" triptychs concept the sudden vision of overlaid photographic messages. Printed in 2016 in the original blue cyanotype process, the collages are generated by the same negatives used in the first part, but are brought to the initially intended being of Light thoughts.
