• reversing memoir – floppy cam

    The separation of photography and analogue film has led to increasingly unmanageable load of pictures. Often it is not the aim to make one good picture, but to take many to select the best of them. Snapshots are sorted out. Faults or undesirable things can be retouched easily afterwards. The digital picture is slowly losing the quality of capturing a moment. Floppy Cam does not save on flash drive but is using a standard floppy disc. The limited storage space is forcing a concious choice of motives. The floppy disc is storing just a single unchanged picture and therefore keeps the moment. Through this process and the engagement the picture gains a meta layer; the moment of the unexpected returns. | july 2014
