"The cure for anything is salt water — tears, sweat, or the sea." -Isak Dinesen
Digital Tools - Major Project #1 - Fractured Narrative

"Your goal will be to create a multi-image scene that plays with notions of time, space, and perspective."

This isn’t the final product - I used ten exposures total, but you get the gist of it. At 8am, 4pm, and 7pm respectively I scrambled on top of my friend’s roof and took these photos with my Fujifilm Instax 210. Together, they create a David Hockney-esque photocollage of the backyard pool. See the rightmost photo? That splash marks where I was chucking rubber ducks off the roof. Right then I saw the uptight neighbor come outside to water his lawn, so I had to crouch down and look like a satellite dish. Thankfully he wasn’t looking for Chinese ninja photographers on the roof, so he didn’t see me, but it was 100℉ in direct sunlight and fifteen solid minutes before he was done adding to the California drought. (I also scraped my knees climbing up and down…that rooftop is like sandpaper. They should get it carpeted.) Anyways, I was happy with the final product even though it was weird and completely different from everyone else’s projects, which made me doubt myself. However, this collage managed to pull off everything I was going for: memory, summer, youth, nostalgia, and the bittersweet passage of time.

I always told myself that I wouldn’t be that one film student, the weird one always doing weirdball things in the name of art, but here I am on the roof throwing rubber ducks into the pool below and there’s not much else I can say about it.

Our film location was a sick 4-story loft with a bazillion windows and the view to show for it. It also had a swing set on the rooftop facing the LA skyline.
