The artist chooses a transparent paper as a base for the pictures, on which the photo emuslion is applied. Through the development process, the paper receives a vital, in part, torn – thus injured – three-dimensional surface, which lends this series the character on transient photographic objects. The paper is emancipated of ist function as a base medium and becomes predominantly a base for a purpose, such as supporting the photograph in its power of expression.
