Relics is a series of unique 2-d and 3-d chromogenic photograms made with discarded objects from the Film and Photography departments at the San Francisco Art Institute. The artists who have taught and studied at SFAI are credited with initiating paramount movements in image-based media, particularly with experimental and conceptual work. The school is both my alma mater and my employer, and my time spent there has revealed the institution as an archive of photographers’ tools, a collection now subject to technological developments. As the school purged itself of film processing equipment, reels, safelights, and enlargers, I collected remnants of processes past and used them in photograms, a nod to early photographic practices. The series considers transformation and materiality, light and its imprint.
