I enlarge the polaroids to fit on A3 and print them, playing with shifting the hue on one of the images, the original polaroids have a liminal, eerie quality which I feel is heightened by increasing the scale I took these at Black Rock Nature Reserve on the River Severn back in September, when I revisited the site of the Tying the Threads project after a five year hiatus. I re-ink the two remaining tatters from Chris favourite shirts, that I had kept, and print with them over the top of these enlarged images. I love the push me/pull me quality of the two images – soft colour and hazy shapes and textured black tatter imprints. I feel they speak of time passed and time present.
