Darkroom’s Eye Chart / Poster

Darkroom’s Eye Chart
Darkroom’s Eye Chart

This is a piece for “an exhibition commemorating the cessation of the still photography lab”. I used photographic paper as a poster covered by a celluloid stencil of the word darkroom laid out to imitate an eye chart; only the words were exposed to light. I didn’t use fixer solution to make the image permanent. From the first day the image was exposed to natural light making the white part of the image gradually recede into darkness, just as the darkroom was due to recede into our memories and be forgotten.
