“Playtime” engages with photography as both a painterly medium and as site for sculptural activity. This begins in the dark room, where I create photograms (a camera-less way of making photographs) using a Durst enlarger and colour filters. I bring these prints into the studio, where I install them together, accentuating their physicality before making in-camera multiple exposures of them. This process contrasts that of how many photographs are created, as a photographer will usually go out into the world and frame a view of it which consists of things that have separate functions aside from being photographed. In "Playtime", images consist only of the photograms that I have constructed for the camera, and shows how their colours and forms (through the multiple exposure process) can mix and interact within it.
