Year: 2019 – ongoing
Device: CAMERA-LESS PHOTOGRAPHY WITH THE USE OF EXPIRED POLAROID FILM
The project is composed by more than 60 photos. Each image is realized on a polaroid negative frame and printed just as one single, non-reproducible piece.
“So my mind sinks in this immensity:
and foundering is sweet in such a sea.”
Giacomo Leopardi –Canti – L’infinito – 1819
The project “Polaroid blooming” is born from the necessity to abandon oneself to less codified expressive channels, during the quest for additional creative freedom.
By adopting typical techniques of abstract and surrealist painting to instant photography (specifically a re-elaboration of grattage through emulsion on negative support) and by working with analog and digital means, I intended realizing images that allowed both during the creative process and the act of fruition to let oneself go to unconscious and potentially liberating automatisms.
The pieces are my personal revolution of color that finally bursts into with all its strength and absoluteness, an immersive color synonymous of re-birth, life, dynamism and at the same time contemplation and abandonment of senses.
