Notes from train to Manchester 4

Negatives
Negative – light exposes dark. Day to Night. Materialistic view of photography – grounding

spectral aspects in material. Dialectic that maps on to dualistic thinking.
Photomicrography of the negative. Stain of light.
Scanning a macro lens or objective over a negative. Link to the Blow-up.
Grain of the image – grain of the voice. Grain becomes noise. Tape and grains- background noise.

Hissing snake- the serpent. Air escaping from a hole. Aperture stop.

Noise – figure. Ground. Measuring a signal image in noise. Falling dust composite video.
The impossible image – limits of technology.
The impossible film.

Relation to Antonioni- Crossing the Tibor.
