inadvertent art

January 11, 2011

. . . . . . . . .

it’s complete craziness around here today so i’m only stopping in quickly to show you this shot. i love these chemical artworks that often appear as a surprise at the start of a developed roll of film. this is one of my all-time favorites, i think. i want to blow it up and hang it on my wall.

it’s good to remember that surprises are possible all the time.

more soon.

    One of those happy accidents! Looks like Rothko or something. Your writing can make the most ordinary moments shine like gold.

    I would love to have this one too. In my bedroom I am using black, white and this color of yellow. In case you would mind sharing it, I would blow it up and hang it in my bedroom.

    i would never have thought of blowing up one of these, but now that you mention it, i can completely see how it would be pretty awesome.

    and i like what you said: “it’s good to remember that surprises are possible all the time.”

    Rothko all the way. I always love these, too. Wonderful, Brian.

    (I am so painfully behind on my reading!)

    supercool. awesome colors, and i love the idea that it’s usually the ‘garbage’ part of the roll. art with a story is even better.

    I never thought to scan those in, but I am going to look more closely when I get my next roll of film. Thanks for the inspiration.
