In an age of mass availability of digital images, which can be produced in seconds and without prior technical knowledge of information and communication, Helena Schlichting uses complex manual image production methods. She works without a camera, with light and chemicals and uses techniques as old as photography itself. In a time-intensive process, the artist coats her unusual image carriers, in part herself, with photo emulsion, exposes them, whether in moonlight or with the light from her mobile phone display, and then develops them. This procedure, like the photo experiments of the 1920s, is dedicated to the peculiar, mysterious-looking laws and possibilities of the medium, away from documentary realism. The results are not pictures in the conventional sense, because they do not carry the gesture of showing and enlightening. No clearly recognizable angle or object is captured, but rather diffuse traces that contain the specific location and a not fully controllable process of creation.
