Resistors (1993)

Things get more technical as one goes back in this chronology. With this series I was limited to a flat-bed scanner to get images into the computer. To get them out I had to travel 30 miles with the digital files on SyQuest disks to have them put on photographic film. After several days I had to travel back again to pick them up. Then I would print them out on conventional photographic paper, assess what needed changing, and then do the whole thing over again.

 

The original prints are about 10x13 inches. If you don't know what a SyQuest disk is consider yourself fortunate. I include them because I find them historically interesting. These represent the beginnings of digital photography—a new candy store that no one really knew what to do with.
