As the image darkened, it “eclipsed”, allowing the scanner to play a central role in its evolution. This work is a search for an image which like a living organism, will continue to develop beyond its creation.
By integrating standard dark-room rocedures with more contemporary technological developments, my work seeks to re-establishes the historical connection between Art, Science and echnology which has been lost over time.
These two works were based on a simple sphere, vhich as it evolves comes to resemble a full moon, or a circular scientific Petri-dish. In the darkroom, the phere was placed on gelatin paper, repeatedly exposed to light of the scanner, while each step in its progression was recorded.
