picture them in light





this one’s from steve and i must say that i do like them quite a bit. perhaps they are a reminder of my sis’ art school days and me helping her pick out slides or cut transparencies on the backlit contraptions. anyhow, it’s old school with new style.

steve made them out of “ikea bas display boxes with a modified ikea light fitting and a small energy efficient bulb. the light fitting throws light up the white back to the frame and glossy white photo paper lining the sides, and gets diffused by a piece of animator’s paper just behind the transparency.”

what i like best is that even during the day, the pictures show through. nice.
