For the past year I have been working on a unique image-making process called "marteaugraphy". At the core of this new photo-based technique is the Light Hammer. Early generations of these tools were purely analogue and required photo paper and dangerous chemicals to create images. This project seeks to construct a new generation of Light Hammer that will combine digital photography and advanced electronics to create a purely digital process.
The requested funds will be used to cover materials and labor as well as the printing of reward materials (courtesy of Fiber Ink Studios). The project is slated for completion by June 1st, with the delivery of rewards targeted for the end of the month. The ultimate goal is to have the new Light Hammer, and the images it creates, shown in one or more exhibitions by the end of 2012 with additional shows and installations in 2013.
