Bedroom Window tracks an experiment lasting three years. The constant is the subject, my bedroom window, and the variables are the quality of light as well as the film stock. Within these parameters, a variety of views become available due to the changing conditions of the environment and the varying emulsion recipes utilized in Impossible Project instant film. The Impossible Project constantly reformulates their film in an effort to eventually match the quality of Polaroid instant film which ceased production in 2008. While they have not yet been successful in matching Polaroid, they have however boldly released a range of films that yield ever-changing results. Rather than wait for a stable instant film, Bedroom Window tests the possibilities— how many ways can one subject be described, and how does the chosen medium contribute to the type of description captured? I revel in this unpredictability, as it allows me to see the window that I encounter everyday anew each time I make an image.
