From the artist statement:
Instant film has always been about play; the medium itself is inherently playful for many reasons, not least of which is its spontaneity. The mere fact that the image is spat out immediately makes the process sociable and fun. The idea of this show was to create a series of somewhat illusive one of a kind instant photos of abstract images and colour and manipulated content. I wanted the viewer to experience the results of image engineering through heat, light, found objects and intimate physical manipulation of the inks in the photo. Even in their abstract form each image attempts to connect the viewer to the ‘real’ world, reminding them that they are indeed looking at a photograph.
