C-prints, 60x60, 2009

Sissa Micheli experiments with the dissolution and disappearance of visual media in many of her works by playing with their transient character. Conserving analogue and digital visual media forever is impossible. That is to say her works are about recognizing the media’s irredeemable claim to immortality. At the same time, she also wants to question the claims to truth in photography and video.

The framed photo series was taken with an expired film reel, and dissolves increasingly from one picture to the other. Here the ambivalent power of seduction and the aesthetic quality of transience become evident in an exemplary and symbolic way.
