White

“White” – 1992, two fire extinguishers were filled with a solution of silver chromate and attached to a back holster. Then a projector with a film documenting the first attempt at flight by the Wright brothers was affixed to the extinguishers. In a darkroom, the movie was projected – in slow motion – onto the expanding dust that was ejected out of the fire extinguishers placed onto my back. When the dust settled, it was spray-moistened with developer, then developed and set. The final outcome was an ornament created by the time continuum of the projected frames of this very contrasting film.
