Iron Plate Projections
These are the Iron Plate Projections (Vol. 2 Mexico and Belize) – an art project by Mikkel Alexander Grabowski. The idea was to try and see if photographs can look more like a painting. And by introducing a rusty iron surface into the final double image it looks like these images. The original 35mm slide image was projected onto a rusty and weathered iron plate and then rephotographed with a 4×5″ Sinar Camera on Kodak duplicating film for optimum resolution and as such creates a change of impression because now the sharpness plane and extreme detail of the iron plate – more than the projected image, comes into focus resulting in a new and different aesthetic expression.
