I am quite fascinated with the coarse quality of eInk displays. They give otherwise pristine but sterile digital images a new life, a breath of consequential beauty hidden in the low resolution, black and white depictions.
As analog production workflows are near their natural death, I find myself drawn to their past and their lost potential for experiencing the tactile.
In this project, I aim to explore the consequences of introducing a deliberate point of interception in a digital image production workflow. In this case, I use high resolution images produced with the use of a digital sensor, and I transfer them digitally to a black and white ePaper display. Using a high resolution digital camera, I then photograph the eInk display, which in turn beautifully ruins the digital images.
Displayed below are my early tests of this process. More to come soon.
