Once again, last minute. Friday’s are definitely busy, because I get off work and then have my art group meeting which usually goes pretty late.
Last week I got a new polaroid camera, and so for today’s archive piece I decided to choose an old polaroid picture I’d taken in 1998. Polaroids have long been a love of mine and have found their way into many pieces of artwork from mailart, to intaglio prints. The idea and image of polaroid often creep into my work. I was of course sad to hear that polaroid was discontinuing production of their instant film, but still hopeful that another company will pick it up. After getting my recent camera, I’ve found that fugi already carries an instant pack film that supports my new camera.
This photo was used in an illustration piece that I can’t seem to find right now, maybe I’ll be able to track it down and post it tomorrow? I had cross hatched with my fine rapidoliner pen, the entire positive space of this piece. The picture was taken out my parents back window, out into their yard.
Anyway, I’m excited to try out my new camera. The film arrived the other day and I haven’t even had a moment to try it out yet, but I’m sure you will see more of that coming soon.
