(A Collaboration with Sean Cousin)
Love Come Take Me is the result of a collaborative exploration with the photographer Sean Cousin, exploring how the integral nature of a Polaroid photograph can be used as both narrative structure and antagonist for creating an essentially reproducible artefact from singular entities.
A seed of ten original ‘found’ Polaroids were used to create a loose sequential narrative. I then created interlinking drawings which were then interpreted by Sean and reclaimed as 52 distinct Polaroids. The result is a narrative structure that emerged without either of us being responsible for the entire direction.
The drawings themselves were each created in under seven minutes, replicating the length of time that it takes for a Polaroid photograph to develop.
