Films : Exposure

film still: XXX a: This and the next two images
are from an evolving sequence toward the end of the film. A number of a particular type of plate have been merged into each other using simple dissolves – but in ‘framed’ areas of the image. These images all contain the strong feature of (actual) overlaid _scratched crosses_. Theses are used at the site to kick-start the processes of deterioration, but for me they suggest small signatures – little identity stamps.
