The Photograms reflect my fascination with the unexpected archaeological fragment and juxtaposition. Made well before my “Videoglyph” series they preview some of the concerns that show up later once digital manipulation becomes available.
IBM Typewriter Ribbon-
I used IBM typewriter ribbon I saved from writing my Dissertation in Graduate school in the late 1970’s. I tore it, stretched it and frayed it and made photograms on a type of light sensitive material called Printing out Paper, that darkens under the action of light. The results feel much like archaeological fragments. This was my aim — to make the current take on the appearance of the ancient.
I also began experimenting with architectural drawing templates juxtaposing them with photographs of material that they symbolize.
