    An interesting idea. This is actually a "positive" scan so I'd have to contact print it to film perhaps and then print from that "negative," or send out the scan to be burned onto film.

    If history is correct, about the time you nail this process, George Eastman will buy your company out...

    FYI/ moving from a small to medium scale production is a bear!!!

I am wondering if I can make more of these types of "images." I messed up this plate, which was a photo of a leaf, and then started rubbing the plate with my thumb under warm water, which caused this eventually.
    Yes, yes and yes.

    More rubbing!

    I am the guy who hates listening to another's description of 'Art or Life or Reality'. At a Modern Art Museum, I ignore all data provided in print or audio. I use my 6 senses. I don't read movie reviews before seeing a movie. I try to examine the World, Humans and Art without someone's filter. Their filter is often cracked and useless.

    One lesson I slowly learned in Art school, you are ready to leave when you throw your advisers out of your studio. Literally. They are invading your space. Eureka is close to the feeling.

    None of this means or makes one an Art Star. I saw a spark once.

    We definitely are out of time. Shake our Earth if you can.

    Great post, thanks. I have oftentimes thought there was too much verbiage on an abstract/modernist piece of art when at a museum/gallery.

    I remember years ago at the MOMA in NY seeing an installation that was simply an electronic fan suspended from the ceiling, which whooshed around the foyer area. Small children ran around chasing the thing, which was just high enough to prevent anyone from touching it (well, hopefully some NBA players doesn't stop by ). I continue to think about that work when I think of what is art?

    I'm a big Fan of Robert Irwin the artist, not the photographer.

    His art installations became almost invisible. They had to put up wires to keep people from walking into the art. I have only seen 2 of his works.

    Words, books and pictures don't capture what 'experiencing' his art is/was. Mysterious light perhaps.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Irwin_(artist) has words.

    Thanks, and very interesting result on yours with the added color. I am mostly interested these days in making b&w silver prints, so I'm not playing much with color, but I wonder if you could do something similar with color paper and light painting. A friend of mine did some of that with color paper and gels and made some beautiful images - one is hanging in my house.

    So the silly thing is my favorite "photo" thus far, playing with these new plates, is this abstract that was more of a happy accident:

    "Two Tree"

    Definitely looks like the "Haunted Forest" to me. Should be great for Halloween!
