enjoying thr florida sun gaveme an idea. i was looking at my sun burn and thoughtcould i grt an image by taping one of my digital negatives to my back and have the sub give me a sun-burn positive image/.before trying,has anybody tried something like that already?
Yes, it's been done.
Take some fertiliser, mix it up and put it in a squirt bottle. In the spring, use it to write phrases of your choice on your or a neighbor's lawn. Say a "Peace" sign on the lawn of the local gun nut.
My dad used to tape negatives of myself and my brother onto unripe apples. When ripe we had pretty ordinary images of ourselves but they were still identifyable. We used to think Dad was gifted with magic until he showed us how it was done. The problem was keeping the negs taped onto the fruit for a fortnight or so.
I vaguely recall news about an artistic installation with a huge (3 or 4m square, probably painted polythene sheet) "negative" placed on a trimmed lawn for a few days for an event opening (was it Wimbledon?). It wasn't exactly a continuous-tone image though, and apparently disappeared very quickly.
This has been done for years on people hasn't it? With those little bunny-logo stickers . . . maybe I've been on the wrong beaches. . .
