This shot is all about keeping things simple – one light, no colour, no Photoshop – just good old-fashioned emulsion and chemicals!
It’s a digital router etching out type in Styrofoam for Shane Cullen’s piece, The Agreement. The two little arms are air jets to keep the process clean. The artist used to do similar work by hand, but considering these panels were 12 feet high and he had 55 to complete, he would still be at it today! The shot was taken in Spring, 2002.
