These images were created using polaroids which had not been traditionally exposed in camera. This process used a variety of light sources, heat, moisture and cold to manipulate the polaroids to create unexpected abstract images, but with some sort of consistency due to experimentation. The study went on for over a year using extra left over polaroids from shoots during my assisting years. The finals here have been digitally printed an waxed to give the look of the traditional polaroid after it has been pulled apart. The original images were flush mounted on end grain exposed wood bases and waxed three times over four months and were meant to be touched as a polaroid, leaving you own personal residue on the image edge.
