This is an “elemental research” category page. It outlines interests around a specific topic. The links at the bottom lead to mostly photographic documentation of experiments and projects that touch on the topic.
(Analog) photography is the place where light’s dual nature is synthesized on the surface of a material substrate. It exists both over time and as object. On the photographic plane the moment continues (potentially) to move across time; an index of an instant and the material history of an object. It is, too, having been eclipsed by digital encoding, the result of a technological history both scientific and aesthetic, which increasingly defines in Rosalind Krauss’ terms a medium as a structural rather than a material support.
