Open Studios 2013 V1

The Open studios this May were a great success with the continued expansion of the SFSA project which is growing and growing. This time I showed some of my new backlit 3D Transparencies and they received much interest. I have designed a frame which I will build for other Transparency projects but for this occasion I adapted some ready made frames incorporating the wires as part of the finished piece.

Basic RGB

Head in the clouds

It’ll all end in smoke

PX600 transparencies

There are three images here, Kennington gas works, some chimneys near Didcot I think, from a train window…. and a self portrait which makes up the smoke image.

Temple

Here’s another transparency, this time a multi-exposure transparency.

“Temple” multi exposure transparency

I think the financial theme is never too far from my mind these days. Perhaps I should change the record. Being near the city seems to influence this a lot. Well, I’m going to Brighton on Wednesday which will help…

px600 UV black frame, double exposure, Sharpie pens and Letraset

Here is my first Polaroid image with added pens and Letraset. It was very tempting to draw over the scanned image on the computer, which I may do for some images, there’s nothing wrong with that. But part of the process I am going through with the Polaroids is to avoid the computer as much as possible (until the end) and the fact that I want there to be an “original” in existence, not just a digital file on a hard drive.

Jacked-in

We’re all jacked in these days. Since I broke my tablet I feel a bit more free, they are cursedly addictive and unproductive.

Futurologist, px100, sx-70 transparency

The px100 film is a bit unstable for my liking, giving these blobs of light, I like the edges though. I montaged UFO headgear onto this lady.
