Sheet Music

I've been experimenting with making prints on different materials: watercolor paper, canvas, glass... and now sheet music.

For this particular print, I painted a light-sensitive liquid onto the paper and made a contact print in a darkroom. It involved a large digital negative (although the original image was taken on 35mm film), one pop of a flash, the sloshing of different chemicals in a barely-lit room, and lots of suspense. I've learned a lot by trial and error — and I love how the process makes me feel a bit like an alchemist.
