Self-Portrait With Force Field

March 31, 2009. Self-portrait with a Fuji Instax polaroid-type camera. I pressed the squiggly lines into the print with the dull end of a knife a minute after exposing it.

 

The Instax is a minimal camera -- it has no tripod mount or cable release, so I had to tape it to a light stand, and press the shutter release with the end of another light stand held at arm's length. If my expression is a touch serious, it is because of the difficulty of this maneuver.
