Turboparalysis, 2014, is part of an ongoing investigation of lens-based media in non-depictive, automatistic states. A 120 roll of lower Manhattan azure sky is shot, rewound and re-shot to “mark” each image. The film is scanned, then images doubled, tripled, rotated and inverted until the diamond composition is reached. This found latticework structure, balancing on one of its corners, is transferred to 8x10 film, and, hovering between analog and digital states, printed by hand from this transparency. No two prints are identical.
