Four Pictures of Ulrich Roski

Jason Fulford, 2009, Polaroid photograph, 26.5 x 21.5 cm

Certainly, the recursive containers of Ulrich Roski are interesting enough, but what is even more compelling to me is the way that this photograph immediately reveals a specific process of its own construction that can ONLY HAPPEN FORWARD IN TIME — the original image, then the collaged cover image, then the Polaroid proof and finally this collapsed composite photograph. Time moves in one direction and this final result is ONLY PRODUCED IN PRACTICE.
