Temporary Printing Machine depicts its viewer in a transient light portrait. When the onlooker stands before the empty canvas, their self-image is slowly revealed on the canvas. Once subject and object have become united in the creation of a portrait, the image begins to fade away.

Every encounter captures a moment in time, which then dissolves as ethereally as it appeared.
