This series of preliminary experiments combines techniques of image-making known since antiquity (the photogram, a photosensitive trace that cannot be fixed) and the creation of digital negatives from photographs generated by artificial intelligence. The use of negatives seems to validate the reality of the elements photographed (an old oak tree, a trio awkwardly kissing...).
Transferred to photosensitive paper exposed to winter sunlight for a month, these evanescent images fade a little each time they are exposed to the eye, conservation in a black box offering them a reprieve.
Work conceived and produced in the context of the a research project called Hypercodex, funded by FQRSC.
