Polaroid Negatives by James Doyle

"These are negatives of silver shade polaroids from The Impossible Project that have decomposed and crystalized. They are part of a photograph I’ve taken, but do not function fully as a photograph on their own as much as a visual object. After separating the negative, they are then scanned in an act of re-photography. By erasing their subject matter, I hope raise this question: do more images signify more meaning? While they could suggest a snowy landscape, these negatives convey no visual form and adopt an all over design. The viewer is left to examine other formal qualities, such as texture and space. The art lies somewhere between destroying the original polaroid and disrupting systems of visual communication."
