Found Images. Old photographs. At once meek and undeniable in their materiality. One copy. This copy. Caches. Hoards. Boxes. Widely and haphazardly distributed until on a threshold of zero to negative value. Images from before the feed. the stream. the cloud. the disc. the drive. Images not yet on the internet. Theres the whole categorisation as vernacular thing, but that begins from a place of privilege and empire. There’s the whole studium, punctum thing. Which thankfully dissolves as you describe it so… Theres the separation we are performing, of these images from their original intended, personal audiences. Theres the nostalgia thing which can initially mask the lingering tone of mortality, but thats not what we are doing here. However you slice it, we age faster than the images we render. These are old, found photographs, we found them and chose them. Now we intend to look at them.
