Mordançage

Each of the over two hundred prints in this series starts with an identically manufactured base: a black circle printed in the same spot on each sheet of gelatin silver paper. These circles are exposed to the Mordançage solution which causes the circles to lift and, as they wash, the chemistry and flow of water to create unique compositions from the silver emulsion. These pieces capture and record the intangible flow of water into a physical medium, creating a non-photographic representation of this phenomenon using the raw materials of the medium itself.
