This work was created using black and white and color Polaroid film. The ideas for this work included extended time and or multiple exposures; combining two or more views of a scene as a conceptual variable. This approach using analog Polaroid film increases elements of chance and unexpected outcomes in the instant film process. Using landscape and analog film as a metaphor for the recording of place and time, these images concern the multiple views and visual interpretation of shared space. In effect, a crisis has disrupted the visual facts of our spatial coordinates concerning what is valuable and important to us. The photographic medium, employed in a basic snapshot style, reveals it to be a profoundly mysterious process that connects us to the optical unconscious.
