laser drawings 2

i hit a bump with these as soon as i tried enlarging them to print. the resolution is too low, they totally lose the luminescence they have on a computer screen. backlit, the images glow, in the right resolution they are crisp and sharp.

as always, when digital fails – go analogue 🙂 i’m now envisaging medium format transparencies, a lightbox and loupe viewing set-up. saves on printing and framing costs, retains the backlighting and crispness, is active rather than passive viewing. there’s potential for materials cross-over (grey book cloth covered box, spherical lens) as well as an excuse to use one of my favourite cameras, my rollei.
