Entry commentary
This piece is digitally constructed from hundreds of contact photograms of baby rats. The exposures took 5 years and a number of litters to make.
My working practice is grounded in the use of photograms - a primitive photographic technique that records the space around objects on paper- made of living creatures. The weight, the size and the shape of things contribute to the image but are also lost in it. The relentless passage of time that is made painfully obvious by conventional photography is less apparent in photograms. These photograms are processed traditionally and then scanned to enable them to be reconstructed as a larger, increasingly complex work. They are then printed.
