The Dark Room
A live performance of photo papers set in the darkroom. In an exploration of the materials of the photographic medium and of their "inner truth", old analogue photo papers are placed delicately on the liquid in the chemical baths, without the deep submersion practiced in traditional processing.
The darkroom comes to life and the view witnesses an intimate and delicate dance as each photo paper slowly absorbs the developing chemicals and creates unexpected visual image.
