Untitled A0

These images were given away as A0 colour copies. As a homage to the xerox U.S. copy art scene of the 1970's. The following is an extract from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Xerox art (sometimes, more generically, called electrostatic art or copy art) is created by putting objects on the glass, or image area, of a copying machine and by pressing "start" to making an image. If the object is not flat, or the cover does not totally cover the object, the image is distorted in some way. The curvature of the object, the amount of light that reaches the image surface, the distance of the cover from the glass all affect the final image. Often, with proper manipulation, rather ghostly images can be made. Xerox art appeared shortly after the first Xerox copying machines were made. There are exhibits now in Los Angeles and New York City museums of more controlled examples of the form. It is akin to photography. Color copiers added to the form, as can be seen by surrealist Jan Hathaway's combining color xerography with other media, or Carol Heifetz Neiman's layering prismacolor pencil through successive runs of a color photocopy process (1988-1990).
The San Francisco Bay Area had an active Color Xerox arts scene starting in 1978 many local artists worked in the medium. From post card stores to gallery exhibits, to Barbara Cushman's Color Xerox Calendar this was a busy time for copy art. Xerox art is often used in mail art.

Made with Kodak Portra film using a camera with a series of four plastic lenses and a spring loaded 1 second duration sequencial shutter. Resulting images are colour printed on A0 matt art paper stock from a low resolution scan and not adjusted in any way.
