New Photo Series

This is a new photo series I am playing with. It emerges from some experiments from last year with artificially aging scanned photos. They sat around my studio for a year now and only recently have I had an idea for what to do with them. I wanted to move beyond the document/object themselves into a commentary or question about the document/object. I'm not entirely sure if this is the landing point or another step along the way.

Wherever it goes, I appreciate the ideas behind or within the image of the prolongation or extension of memory...and/or perhaps even the compression of time. Are these simple artifacts or is there a greater narrative?
