Nothing to be Written

August 21, 2018


Nothing to be written is a virtual reality experience created by 59 Productions, based on a set of telegrams from the First World War.  The piece involves a lot of long-exposure-style imagery, where the moving elements leave a trail behind them.  For the poster, I wanted to recreate this in photographic form (in the actual VR piece the motion trails are CGI).  Using roughly a 2-second exposure, I dropped a piece of paper from the ceiling in a dark room, shining a torch on it from above in order to light the trail of the paper, and used a flash at the end of the exposure to capture the paper at the end of its drop.  It took a long time to get the trail looking right as the movement of the paper was different each time and it was difficult to control where the paper would go!
