Virtual Landscapes

spacerice19

 

Virtual landscapes are photographs taken without a camera. In the colour darkroom, I captured the melting process of ice cubes using an enlarger and photographic paper. I wanted to explore the materiality of photography in its purest form using only light and a photosensitive support. Afterwards, I scanned the photographs and manipulated them using 3D software. The final outcomes look similar to google maps images, but they are just traces of ice cubes that no longer exist.
