Lomography and Temporality
Lomography is a photographic technique using plastic cameras in the 80s
characterized by over-saturated colors, off-kilter exposure, blurring, “happy accidents,”
and alternative film processing. Its photo vérité character inspired this project
in bringing together the temporal concepts of duration and continuity. It captures time
in a single frame without isolating each single moment. The layers and blurs
flawlessly express the continuous flow of time, the fleeting and the seemingly invisible.
These two sets were part of the Ausstellung Image Lab 2010: Bild und Zeitlichkeit
at the eikones NFS Bildkritik, Basel on 16 September – 30 October 2010.
