Wooden Squares

All Days | Day by Day | Author Login

Nostalgia of 'feeling' film, the edges of photographs and flipping through albums I wanted to transfer my digital prints onto something I could hold and share with others. My project is the whole creative process of trial and error in learning how to transfer photos onto wood. Inspired by the life snippets we share on Instagram and a drive to bring digital back into the physical.


Day 2

I'm beginning to second guess my choice in project. I've never worked with balsa before. Unlike my brother who's an expert in building model aeroplanes. The key is to get the perfect glue to wood ratio, too much and when your pieces have dried they've moved and are too fragile to pull apart to re-do. Too little and the edges curl up. Regardless of how they've dried each little square will be used for the remainder of my project. Perfection, in imperfection. "Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring." - Marilyn Monroe
