Polaroid mistakes from “A box for two.”
The mistakes are ok!
Wishing you all a year of opportunity, connection and energy.
I’m full of gratitude.
Remember when I said that I was done with Polaroids for a while? It turns out that was an untruth. (Photo cred to the one on the left goes to Jake.)
Due to Magicube troubles, I think it might be time to take some pictures outside in the bright bright sunshine.
In other news: I’ve been playing with old cameras a lot lately, so I’ll have lots of things to post soon. I’ve also realized that I haven’t finished anything lately. I guess I’m still learning how to be a grownup artist that doesn’t go to school. And today I just started what will hopefully be a series of embroideries (if there is a question mark floating over your head, that is completely justified. But, trust in trusting).
Check out the Polaroid I took of Kaleb yesterday. Sometimes salvaged gear leads to some really nice surprises.
Kaleb + Polaroid = Kalebaroid? Not as good as Joe-laroid, I’m afraid
The other night I went mildly Polaroid-crazy, with (as you can undoubtedly see) mixed results. I’m actually really happy with all of them, mistakes included. I’m just bummed on the very last one, because I had had a beer and accidentally abandoned it to develop all night. Oops. Lesson learned.
Also, JACK STOP BEING SO GROUCHY.
Oh my goodness.
I mentioned to Jake recently that I wanted to find a Polaroid camera, and he came home from Bookman’s today with (ta-da!) this guy. I did some internet research, and learned cool things about how Andy Warhol fondly used it (there is a current exhibition of his Big Shot Polaroids at Duke University which you can see here) and that it is beloved by Polaroid enthusiasts for its “eccentricity.” I found film and MagiCubes for it on Ebay, so i’m crossing my fingers that it’ll all come together and I can make a project of it.
Wheeee! THANKS, JAKE.
