Arye Wachsmuth on his current works at DOMINO/RML
M.M. (Mirrormedia Series/Transluminograms).
A series of photographic appropriations that was conceived before the Covid pandemic.
The photographic works reflect the daily landscape of the print media. In this way, a kind of pictorial diary is created.
Depending on the frequency of reporting in the daily newspapers and the selection of possible motifs, some themes appear more often than others.
Through the superimposition of images, the news and stories collide with one another and therefore "tell" a different story or make room for one's own associations.
I termed the photographic process, a self-developed exposure technique, as a Transluminogram.
