Three – Nine – 35mm

Friday, 06 May 2016 10:19 Published in Projected Light

Title: Three – Nine – 35mm

(Alternative Document filtered) 2016

Date: 2016

Materials: 35mm slides,  electroluminescent panel, electrical tape.

Size: Wall Installation

Notes: Three 35mm digital slides exposed to light during the duration of the Alternative Document exhibition, Project Space Plus, University of Lincoln, UK.

First shown: Still Unresolved, (  ) Gallery, Nottingham Trent University, Fine Art, School of Art and Design, Nottingham, UK, 28th April - 5th May 2016.

A 35mm slide projection and digital hologram installation was included in the Alternative Document exhibition at Project Space Plus, University of Lincoln, UK, for 28 days in 2016. Over that period, light from the projectors denatured the photographic emulsion on each of the slides.  Originally opaque, with a clear line and rectangle – the dark background slowly turned pink, changing the outcome of the projected image over time.

Through the visible changes, which took place over the course of the exhibition, the installation became an unintentional durational work.

Here, the slides used are part of their own ‘filtration’, illuminated by the cold electronic light from the thin, inbuilt, electroluminescent panel.  A self-contained series of tiny images previously hidden within the machines.  As in the projector they intercepted light to form an image - in this case they become objects in their own right - bright rectangles made visible by 'electronic' light.

Special thanks to the staff at www.elpanelandtape.co.uk for their help with the electroluminescent panel and electronics for this installation.
