ONE LAST HOUR | MULTIPLES
ONE LAST HOUR is a multiple of 571 pieces, representing the 571 plants that have become extinct since 1750. The photographs that pay tribute to them are produced using the same methods as the Talbott salt prints, which made the scientist a pioneer in photography. In the ONE LAST HOUR project, the process is puroposly modified so that, if facing any light exposure, the image of the plant fades away in one hour: A way of questioning ourselves about possession, preservation and consumption.
