  • Saint Celluloid is a series of self portraits exploring both the vulnerability and immortality of the film star as well as the oppressive and regressive culture of fame. These photographs represent the archetype of the icons and the would-be icons who are simultaneously exalted and dehumanized in our collective consciousness.
     
    Inspired by the idea of instrumental transcommunication (ITC), a term coined by Ernst Senkowski in the 1970s to refer to communication through any sort of electronic device between discarnate entities and the living, these images portray the archetype in the form of ghosts trapped behind a screen and glimpsed through an electric graveyard. 
     
    The effects for this series were created by making several short moving portraits, which were then captured in long exposure while in motion behind a veiled television screen.
