    — 3 Fujifim Instax SQ photographes
    — 3D-printed PLA filament


    In a time where digital pictures are consumed and thrown away by the million every minutes, I wanted to slow down a bit and create something tangible again, that would last more than the mere seconds Instagram or Facebook deign to grant it.
    I chose to work in the "polaroid" format, using Fujifilm Instax, a very interesting media to explore, as it somehow felt like a middle ground between traditional film photography and digital camera.

    For me, the main attracting aspect of Instant film is that although very pop and plastic-y in essence, polaroid is a medium that eventually creates a sense of transience and a melancholic feeling. Its peculiar framing also conveys distinct emotions, like looking from afar (time & space) at a different world, through a window.

    This series is displayed as triptychs, in small 3D-printed frames, just like my bigger series WINDOWS. Each picture can be taken in a different location or at the same place, at different dates, but once put together, they narrate a story. The layout and the general impression is based on the 3-verse structure of Japanese Haiku, a minimalist poetic form from which emerge various moods and sentiments.

    Finally, the additional architectures on the film are drawn by hand with posca pens. They are an essential part of the narration, a character on its on right, that question the reality in which the pictures were taken.
