Art Description

Photography: Color, Dye Transfer and Photogram on Glass.

No.2 In a technical study of feature colour film stock through the history of cinema. Designed as visual representation (as well as literal proof) of the key film stocks used and their colour properties, the works were created by chemically reducing various rare unused gelatine-based films.

The works display not just the colour properties but also the chemical structure, the physicality and the form of the film stocks. You can see the tones made from the colours as well as what is achievable. They go a long way in explaining the trends in colour film of the 1900’s.
