Jasmin photographed in a studio using FP-100C polaroid film. The images were taken of things that would enhance the desired effect of the final product. The exhibition consisted of 10 images created using a technique called emulsion lifting. For display these images were sandwiched between two layers of clear acrylic and hung away from the wall to allow light to pass through, accentuating the texture and plastic nature of the emulsion.
These images were taken as part of a group exhibition, held in Cardiff 2017. Titled PhotoPlastic the group decided to delve into what plastic meant to them as people and as photographers.
A synthetic material made from a wide range of organic polymers that can be moulded into shape while soft, and then set into a rigid or slightly elastic form.
"capable of shaping or moulding," from Latin plasticus, from Greek plastikos "able to be moulded, pertaining to moulding, fit for moulding," also in reference to the arts, from plastos "moulded, formed."
