Here are the simple steps on how I created a concoction that put a destructive twist on my film! Read on for the instructions.
This year, I made a promise to myself that I will be more bold in experimenting with film. With that I prepared a concoction out of household items in my attempt to bring beautiful destruction to my film. Personally, I am not completely satisfied with the results, but others might appreciate it. Here is what I did:
In a small cup, mix water, dish washing liquid, some vinegar, and a pinch of salt. Mix it well.
Place your sacrificial roll (color negative in my case) in its plastic canister, and slowly pour in your concoction.
Leave it there for 5 to 10 minutes.
Remove the roll and place it in as safe area where it can dry. leave it there for 24 hours.
Transfer the film into another spool as you do so when redscaling (without inverting the film) to remove the remaining fluids.
Send it to the lab for processing.
Here are some of my results:
The destruction seems to well on its way, bu I think I need to leave the roll in the drying area for a few more days.

The beauty of having different languages is that some concepts are estranged from us. That doesn't mean we can't relate to it, though. Let's put a name on the feeling of being overwhelmed by the universe with ‘degrassé’.
