I live in a empty home. Empty rooms, with empty floors and empty walls. It will be like that for another couple of days, then we’ll move to my in-laws to let the company take the very last things still in the house, like the bed and the sofa.
This Saturday we’ll have a wedding to shoot, so the photographic equipment stays with me. Just to be sure that nothing gets lost or damaged, I kept home also all the analog cameras, the studio lights, the polaprinter and even the slides projector. The latter is a very old item I bought last year, it’s a bulky, heavy and noisy 35mm and 120mm slides projector I intend(ed) to use to project painting-like photographs into empty painting frames. I used it very rarely because I don’t have (yet) a screen. But today I have a white, empty wall.
So I set up a little slideshow with the few hundreds of slides I shot between November and December. They are all 35mm. I don’t really like the resolution. I definitely have to save some time to start shooting some 120mm slides with my rolleicord.
The projector is on and I want to shoot its light. And the colors it projects. So, with Claudia, we start some incense sticks and we lay under the light, playing with the smoke, while I keep shooting trying to catch some nice smoke patterns, to get all the colors the lamp is projecting, and to capture the conic shape of the light beam. Here’s one of the shots.
