AgX Clip (video)
AgX is an art-science project about memory and disappearance; it features time-lapse macro-photography of photographic negatives being chemically destroyed.
This promo contains selected excerpts from the full project, which is a dual-channel audio-visual installation made up of two single-channel works, "HNO3" and "H2O2", with a soundtrack produced by Seattle-based sound artist and composer Rafael Anton Irisarri. Each work explores the effects of different strong acids and chemical compounds on photographic negatives -- nitric acid, sulphuric acid, acetic acid, sodium hypochlorite, silver nitrate and many others.
