THE WAR OF THE SOUL
SX-70 LAND CAMERA
BLACK & WHITE POLAROID
The Psychomachia by the Late Antique Latin poet, Aurelius Prudentius Clemens, from the early fifth century AD, is a medieval allegory that describes the conflict between the seven deadly sins and the seven contrary virtues personified in battle. Interpreted through the intimate medium of Polaroid, the roles of what is good and what is evil blend and contrast through variable sizes, manipulation, and mixed media applications.
The images were then sewn into an artist book using an old hard cover copy of The Divine Milieu by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.
The book pages contain die cut windows throughout, hiding and revealing details of the images.
