slide sabotaging experiments
Well that was fun. Do I need to say I'm not a photographer? What on earth am I going to do with all these small yellow boxes? A friend brought me stacks of her grandfather's and grandmother's slides. We spent an afternoon going through me with my brand new slide projector (purchased off gumtree for $50). She's clearing out her place and wanted me to have them. I decided to use those for the slide sabotaging experiments instead of my Dad's slides even though I have all of his digitised. It gives me the heebie jeebies to scratch over or mark people's faces and bodies... Objects no problem. Landscapes no problem. But people... feels like a dishonouring of memory even though these are people I'll never know who are no longer alive.
