Time Lapse Transfer

If we are Facebook or Instagram friends, you are probably aware of my current exploration 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.   Below is a time lapse video of a recent work of this kind in progress.

Days worth of progress, 14 separate image transfers onto purposefully distressed aluminum foil condensed into 44 seconds.   Working with DASS supersauce and transfer film.  See the final piece at the upcoming Photography Since the Millennium exhibition at the Carnegie Center for Art & History.  Exhibition dates are October 9th, 2015 through January 9th, 2016.  Show is curated by CJ Pressma.
