Assignment 2 – Presentation

I deliberated over how to present Assignment 2 – Ephemerality of the Image in my head for some time. Originally it had been requested by the course to present it in an online format and I feel it still works well in this format. However, I have decided to present the single-image narratives as singular prints too. My reasoning for printing the images as well is two-fold. Firstly, I feel the project possesses greater impression for potential viewers because of the size I have printed the images. I printed them A3 sized which is comparably large. With the images online it is still possible to view large and even zoom in on the singular images but I feel seeing an A3 print leaves a greater impression for these images. The fact that the images incorporate Polaroid/Instax images within them (which are usually intrinsically a much smaller format) makes the impact of being printed so large greater.

Secondly, printing the images showed better the ephemerality of the image as the images were then put together in their printed forms to make a larger picture. The images that make up the final photograph became part of a moment that consisted of myself holding a frame against a dark background containing the smaller images. This moment has now passed and all that’s left of that moment is another image. To better convey this in the prints, I purposefully left large white borders on the singular images to imitate Polaroid/Instax borders. This was in order to further convey the picture-in-picture message and also lead up to the final photograph where all the images appear with my hand holding the frame. In the final photograph the large white borders were still evident which was contiguous with the singular images I’d printed leading up to this final photograph.

Final Photograph - Note How the Large Instax Borders are Continued in the Smaller Photos Hanging on the Frame Which is Also Consistent with the A3 Sized Prints for the Individual Images
