In this work, Mella Travers uses experimental film development techniques by using chemical stripping agents and re-developing techniques to create this body of work reminiscent of the 1920 silent movies.
The wall itself is a perfect backdrop where people and objects appear to be emerging or disappearing, with the use of experimental process showing the negative and positive image in one frame.
