Now I have a solid justification for ‘decaying’ my photos, I came up with a list of techniques that might be interesting to either research into or literally try.

PINTEREST BOARD – experimentation
– Different techniques and presentation ideas for end-user context later on.

  • transfer onto fabric and wash? – sew back into; draw back into with water-soluble pens?
    • this way the ink can break down further, and the pen can then add more detail back into the image
    • Polaroid Photography by Abby Murphy, via Behance  Series of Polaroid 669 lifts mounted on found paper and fabric
  • weather glass + PVA transfer – sandpaper down afterwards??
    • I like the idea of glass transfers a lot, as Matt noticed my work has alot of links to light, and perhaps transferring an image to glass is possibly the closest to being directly connected to light.

  • draw / write into photo? print on matte textured paper NOT glossy/ epson paper (ink runs/ smudges)
    • this is an interesting technique to add more personality to what could be a ‘straight’ image, using perhaps personal insights to add another dimension to the image

  • leave in water
    • how much will an image degrade if you leave it in water for a while?
  • bury in dirt
  • heat/ water paper transfers
    • the transferring of the image breaks down some of the strength of both the pigment and paper and therefore literally becomes something that looks like its decaying.
    • image transfer con pellicola polaroid
  • projection – using projections onto objects and re-photographing them could produce something that holds quite a few layers of meaning.
    • This could include mediums such as glass and marbles, as a way to continue to create metaphorical and literal ‘layers’ that end up being a way to create more depth in the viewers mind.
