Bits.


A bit can be atomic, it is the smallest unit of data in a computer. It can be a unit
of information or it can be a description of a piece, like a bit of chocolate or a bit
of a walk... but this is then relating to time, like saying “the film went on for a bit
too long”. I could bite my lip but then if it was in the past I would say “I bit my lip”.
A group of 8 bits come together to make 1 byte, and a group of 36 photographs can
come together to make 1 exposed roll of 35mm film.


This is a book of bits.

With unwanted film off-cuts being caught between being packaged or binned at the
lab, this photo album resurges potential images, left over material that has been
rescued bit by bit.

Handbook

Salvaged from discarded rolls of film at a lab, the images in this book
have been cropped and detached from their original scenes... Selected
hands are touching - connecting actions of the people in the scenes to our
own daily actions, from bookmaker to book beholder, to our devices and
vices, and to the anonymous photographer who has offered each potential
of image.


As a very intimate part of our body, an extension of our insides, used to
hurt or to heal, our tool, speak language or to signal - our communication
is held within our touch.



A special thank you to Artful Dodgers Imaging, Rabia Kader, Wojciech Kawczyk
and Carl Randall for making these boxes possible.
