Found Negatives | volume 01
These images are from a project that I’ve been working on off and on for almost a year now. I’m just now getting to the point where I’m ready to start releasing them into the wild.
The compositions on this page will take shape in two different forms, as stand alone panels, and combined as a hand bound book.
This project centers on concern and perplexity regarding the interpersonal relationships and codes of conduct that have developed or continue to develop within massively connected and often times entirely anonymous means of communication and community construction. Practically, in terms of process, I have not yet moved far from the interesting play on words, “Found Negatives” and the combination of found and repaired images juxtaposed with collected comments from some of the internet’s most popular forums and media contents sites. Conceptually, the juxtaposition moves the tongue in cheek satire forward into the territory of critical inquiry and self-reflection with perspective and purpose.
