20 x 24 Polaroid


20 x 24 POLAROID / In the early 1970s the Polaroid Corporation designed and built a 700 pound 20 x 24 in. instant camera which, due to its size, was destined for strictly studio duty. Within that context they invited artists to their Cambridge studio facility to experiment with the camera. Generally the artists could stay three to five days and had an assistant to manage any needed technical help. The results were impressive considering the limitations that guided the project and amazingly diverse work was produced by the 22 artists invited. My curiosity landed on the remnants of my own setups, setups made to be dismantled and photographed in the process.
