ECDYSIS

A three dimensional installation of bound negatives.

Project Statement

The term ecdysis refers to an action of shedding or casting off of an outer integument, or skin.  I cut my color negatives, black and white negatives and color positives in to single frames and then rebound them in a non linear pattern to create this piece, an outer coat of memory, a statement of self. Memories are tricksters and often we look to the photographic image to confirm an experience of time and place. My use of analog materials as subject echoes my curiosity with the transcending and ambiguous properties of photography.

Ecdysis is a mixed media installation. Materials used include over three thousand 35mm color negatives, black and white negatives, color positives and waxed linen thread.
