Buried Alive

1

Film is not dead, and can not be killed! Try burying it alive, it will survive!

If you though that you could get rid of film you better think again! Try digging a hole and conveniently forgetting about the film for a month!

  1. Roll up your sleeves and dig a hole
  2. When you’re finished with your film roll, tie it up with a string (so that you won’t forget it)
  3. Bury it deep into the ground. Leave it for 4 weeks, allowing the film to ferment in soil.

What do you get? Out-of-this-world, violent, distorted holes and tears.

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.

    The photos were underexposed maybe because the film I used was already expired. But I'll try again and again, and will never stop trying new film.
