Blood Prints

Curiosity has led me to a photographic process, which I derive a visual representation of decaying organisms. Photography, inherently, has always been a way to capture time and to create a record of a singular moment; however, what if you could create a record of the physical action of decay and compress this gradual process into a singular moment? My desire for this process stems from trying to make sense of cellular breakdown and to show its strangeness and beauty in an image. In this body of work, I’m using blood on photographic light sensitive paper to record the effects of its decomposition – what manifests on the paper are vibrant colors of non-contained shapes that mimic the viscous forms of blood and cellular tissue. The resulting images are vestiges of a larger idea that the biology of living materials are dynamic, and ever changing.
