About this project

After you watch the video above, I want you to imagine the possibilities of what could go on that greenscreen. Pretend like it is a metaphor for the undiscovered possibilities of the photographic print. There could be rocketships or waterfalls behind me, the world is my oyster.

I want to create a new method of photographic output that approximates screen-based vision; I want photographs to glow in the dark, move, and change long after they have left the computer and exist in physical space.

I would show you more a more tangible example of the project outcomes in the video, but sadly, what I want to do doesn't exist yet. This is why I seek funding, I want to build the future, but I need your help.

I want to build a new method of printing, and examine the effects of various dynamic processes on the photographic print. Imagine prints that either glow in the dark, and darken in the light. Feel free to imagine these in the same print, or in two separate prints, whichever blows your mind more.

I am going to do this with the help of the brilliant people at Atelier Boba in Paris (this is where it must happen). Atelier Boba is the brainchild of Ryan Boatright (former Research Scientist at the Image Permanence Institute) and Caroline Barcella (trained photograph conservator). Imagine the powerhouse that these two people represent together and then help me get over there to work with them.

I intend to create works that mimic screen-based vision in print form, and serve to provide a more apt translation of screen-based contexts to the two dimensional print.

I want to create these awesome processes and share them with you.

The ultimate product of this project will be the development of processes and works that address screen-culture and its impact on contemporary photography and new media by making prints that look and feel more like screens, prints that move and change, and interact with the viewer.

Please help me make this project a reality!

Experimental processes may include (but are not limited to):

phosphorescent inkjet printing
DIY rapid prototyping
stereographic printing
light sensitive dot matrix printing
various contemporary applications of older digital processes
