    Headline quote from the article: "As digital imaging flourishes, some artists find themselves drawn in a very different direction––toward physicality and unorthodox processes."

    http://www.artinamericamagazine.com/news-features/magazine/rematerializing-photography/

    In this article, "rematerializing" means....
    - Christopher Colville, taking pics of stuff he blows up
    - Klea McKenna, discovering photograms
    - Matthew Brandt, "sourced the salt for salted paper prints from the subjects themselves by collecting their tears, sweat, sperm, mucus, breastmilk, or blood"
    - Farrah Karapetian, uses colored light in the enlarger
    - Chris McCaw, light writing to make images at dusk / night

    Interesting

    Regards, Art
