CMY is an installation transforming 4 x 6 inch printer remnants from a one-hour photo lab into 5 x 7 foot flags. The installation was realized for the month of August in 2016 at Lillstreet Art Center in Chicago. In photography, enlarging usually yields increased visibility of details, however, these flags were hung from poles on the building’s rooftop and therefore largely seen from a distance. The flags appeared predominantly as colorful double-sided combinations of cyan, magenta, and yellow, despite depicting images larger than 10 times their original size. When I was deciding which images to use, I came across a single instance of a wake and funeral service, harking back to the Victorian era tradition of ‘memorial portraiture’. As a photographic tradition no longer widely practiced, these images spoke to me as a parallel to the demise of the one-hour photo lab and the ever-evolving technological landscape of vernacular photography.
