libi rose striegl: “Magic Glowing Rectangles”
I started making a daily Instax photo—a straightforward, film-based image-making—for the first time in longer than I can remember.
With every other aspect of life being forced into magic glowing rectangles, and with my own need to spend hours a day staring at my screen as I finished and prepared to defend my dissertation, the need to make things in more tangible modes became acute.
So I threw myself into kitchen experiments, making masks and making a single image each day. I usually write code or work with words. Even when I do work with photographic images, they are usually abstracted or mediated in some fashion. This has removed that veneer.
