After the project Movements in the Dark. I decided to continue my research into movement based photograms and see where it leads me to. The photograms below are a small portion of that research. I am still playing with light in the darkroom, and contemplating on the unbelievable joy I feel every time a new photogram is made. The result still depends on a play of chance, which partly explains the thrill involved, when every photogram is a surprise.
Process: I move my body between the light sensitive paper and the source of light in the photographic darkroom. When my body blocks the light, the photosensitive paper is affected unequally. That's how the silhouettes you see in the photograms below appear. And because the movements I perform are complex, even when I repeat them exactly the same way, there still are differences. Even these slightest differences in movement produce a different result, making it hard to predict and control the final image...As part of my research into movements and colored light, I have also started video-experiments, which later evolved into a separate finished work.
