Archaeological excavations: process photos
Some images taken by Paul Newman of my process as I scour the site for pieces of broken shellac records.
The strings on the poles are really a safety feature to stop people falling down the holes. The trays I’m using are photographic darkroom trays, weighed down with bricks to stop them being blown away. The white tray, here, is for broken record pieces; the red tray for other miscellaneous bits and bobs. I also found a rusted old Nissan car stereo near this site, which will feature at some point in the work.
