Dead Media Archive was about making something new out of something old. I found the difficult parts were correcting the negatives digitally and also going an extra step to showing the new.
Using personal material gave me the opportunity to put my feelings into the work. For me, showing old photos can make me uncomfortable because I am a personal person, as in I do not share a lot about myself unless asked.
I have distorted sections to hide information in the photo. This can be faces, full figures or objects.
The atmosphere is quite scary and you can also see the awkwardness of revealing information.
