Agitating Contradiction, 2021

Agitating Contradiction, attempts to reconcile a pervasive love for holding onto time and place through the analogue image with the contradictions that come about through this action. It is easy to forget that the nostalgic scene memorialised in a roll of film is dependent on chemical reaction. Ignited by ongoing efforts to disentangle the discarded waste from Narrm’s waterways and to investigate Coburg’s former Kodak factory, my work looks to rectifying the toxicity of my photographic practice by adopting non-toxic film-processing alternatives. How do we navigate the heartache of letting go of archiving time and place in order to reciprocate the care that place provides us?
