analogue c prints, 100cm x 125cm
Baltic amber was projected onto light-sensitive photographic paper in an analogue photo lab for this work. Through the process-induced inversion of colours, which normally transforms the negative into a positive, the natural object becomes an abstracted image. Baltic amber is made of orange and hardened resin that often contains insects and plant remains from long ago. While the ability to store information in a transparent medium is reminiscent of the photographic negative, this work draws a connection from a natural phenomenon to a human-made process.
