Site-specific installation of projected video essay in a black space with loudspeaker

Too loose, too tight, and just right is an experimental video essay on the photographic practice of tensioning photosensitive paper performed in the dark within the printing process that is projected into a dark black space to heighten the sense of hearing a practice that cannot be seen.

This work is encountered best in its physical installation. Should you encounter the work in front of a screen, headphones are advisable and if possible to be in a quiet space to tune in to the sounds.

This work forms part of an AHRC funded PhD research project on
photographic practices to show and experience what practices do
when they are at work.
