In response to Plume’s call for collaborating artists, Wild Ilk wanted to capture the mystical and abstract nature of the Tabula Rasa landscapes within their own work. A photographic medium seemed logical to tie in with the rest of the exhibition. Wild Ilk have always had a fascination with Kaleidoscopes and this seemed a fitting opportunity to experiment with one.
Kipp Jones led the project from his Berlin Studio, building a kaleidoscope large enough to shoot a camera down. Many forms and materials were experimented with, including sections of the Tabula Rasa pieces. The project was shot on Medium format film, using a Bronica camera, the negatives were scanned and then photographically enlarged using the C-Type process. The analogue nature of the process lends a dream-like quality to the results.
