I have spent the whole day making experimental compositions with the loose imagery printed on tracing paper in the photogram technique. As from the previous dark room session I had made several quite sucessful experiments I decided to push the boundries further and instead of making the collages at home and setting their layouts on pages I decided to work with loose sheets of prints and make the compositional layouts while in the dark room and in a quick way without thinking too much in order to make more experimental outcomes. Here are the final pieces:

I understand it will be impossible to use all of them in the book however I have loads of experiments to choose from. Positive comments: blurriness adds interest to the whole idea – represents the dream like pictures; automatic drawings – cut outs look as if they had been drawn or scratched into a rock or thick material, look highly experimental and expressive – exactly what I was looking for in my prints for this project.
