These images are the result of light and heat treatments on different types of instant film. I set out to explore the concept of translating music into an image using instant film. I was interested in the fact that different processes could create somewhat unique, abstract images.

Firstly I explored the effect of heat on multiple types of instant film, including the Fujifilm Instax range, Original Polaroid Colour 600 Film and the gelatin based Polaroid SX-70 film, using a manual heating process. Then I moved on creating a prototype instant camera and system to translate sound. This simple prototype consisted of a 3D printed body and an Arduino which read the frequency of a tone, translated it into a unique pattern which activated a set of LEDs inside the camera body to expose the film.

The vision for the project being a camera which could effectively create a unique representation of sound at the moment the photo was taken, using a combination of heat and light to manipulate instant film. Reach out if you are particularly interested in this project and hearing more about the process and the methods used.
