Light Box
2008
Wood box, superimposed 35mm slides printed on transparency, 13watt light
8" x 8" x 10"
While constructing the slide screen, I began randomly combining two and three slides together and holding them up to the light. I was attracted to the painterly quality I found in the layered images, but was also very interested in the rich psychological potential I could create by combining multiple snapshots. I began superimposing my own narrative into the slides; making up my own memories of relationships and connections for people I never knew. I printed the layered images on transparencies and built the retro styled light boxes, painted with colors from the era, to compliment the slide house.
