Untitled, Kodak, HD. Video in sculptural installation. 2014

From roughly 1915-1930 Kodak engaged in a wide range of color processes that would later become their branded Kodachrome three- color process. These first color film tests set the standards for how we understand the interactions between lightness, darkness, shadow, and brightness—standards that continue to influence contemporary image-making practices. In the "kodak project" I read my archival research in the Kodak Eastman archives against my own footage of modern bodies to query the role digital video technologies might have in reorganizing the power dynamics between the camera, the operator, and the subject.
