Silver Nitrate is a material sensitive to light, which enables the embedding of substance into photography. 

 

In a chemical process, by adding various solutions, I turned the Silver Nitrate from its original liquid state to a crystalline and solid, and created a new material, which stand on its own, and allows to sculpt the image and expand the photograph’s dimensions, thus creating a transformation of the medium. 

Since one of the qualities of the Silver Nitrate is sensitivity to light, the work is presented under electrochromic glass that goes from transparent to opaque in ten minutes, thus serving as an oxygen mask that lends the image a longer life span on the material.
