I want to experiment with creative uses of purposely damaging color film, mainly for distortion/color effects. (...) The key is, it has to enhance/distort the (latent) images up to the point of utter abstraction, but without entirely destroying the images or the film.. (...)
Why do it? Because the result is a one-of-a-kind image. And because that image so boldly contrasts with the photoshopped perfection that seems to surround us now. In an age when one can no longer trust the truth of the images we see, an image that is raw and imperfect can be a breath of fresh air.
As long as the damaged image presents something deeper than merely the damage done, I think this is an idea worth exploring. (...)"
