I am currently exploring the world of digital photographic transfer techniques reminiscent of old school alternative processes. By printing onto specially coated transfer film, my images are released onto a variety of substrates with custom made transfer mediums. This process reiterates the print making pleasures I experienced when creating photo emulsion transfers and lifts with Polaroid film. At the same time, the superimposing of images to create a final piece emulates the multi-layered, 19th century photographic printing process of Gum Dichromates. I find myself continually looking to the past to process the present.
Luminiferous: Adventures in Metal, features an image transfer process solely onto metal substrates. The decision to work with metal is a direct result of searching for the reflective light I once took for granted living near the ocean.
Here is a time lapsed video of my recent full on production mode. Stay tuned for more info as the exhibition draws near!!
