This project focuses on the process of creating an analogue negative from a perspective based on the thought of social ecology and vibrant matter. I formulated a series of seven developers based on ingredients available to me, either already in my own living space or that I was able to forage. The result is a series of large format negatives and 2 rolls of film processed by hand at home and, more to the point, a working understanding of the best way to formulate photographic developer while working in collaboration with my surroundings. See my website for more information.
