Unforeseen Structures

Mitch Goldstein's avatar Mitch Goldstein Vote Code: 65573

"Unforeseen Structures" is artist Mitch Goldstein's examination of emergent form using darkroom photography techniques, specifically the photogram. Photograms use no cameras or lenses — instead, objects are placed on or near unexposed photographic paper and briefly exposed to light. This process results in abstract black and white compositions, which emerge unpredictably from the physical materials used in their creation. Goldstein relinquishes control, relying instead on intuition and chance to allow form and structure to develop from the process. This work consists of a series of framed photograms. A large selection of work (both final and in process) is online at instagram.com/mgoldst
