My work in the exhibition: Liquid Debris
The Liquid Debris series concentrates on the erasure and erosion of the visual information that is stored in the gelatine layer of photographic film. I manipulate 8mm, 16mm, and 35mm found footage using different organic and chemical processes. I cultivate seeds and moulds on 35mm film, corrode 8mm film with my own gastric juices, and obliterate images on 16mm footage in a way that echoes my series of Works on Paper, first erasing the gelatine and then writing on it. In Liquid Debris, I re-stage two interrelated phenomena regarding human legacy: the human attempt of opposing the transience of life by storing information and the unavoidable erosive process that looms over us.
