Both digital and analogue capturing, rendering, printing and casting techniques have been used to create the work. Antas is interested in the cross over and merging of traditional techniques with current ones, such as photogrammetry and 3d printing. Together with forms from nature he has used his close family; son, father and mothers’ hands. The photographs in themselves are also a hybrid of techniques where Antas travelled to Japan to create the pictures in one of the last remaining workshops still using the old technique; Collotype. The material quality of the final image is as important as the image itself. The complexity of the processes used are contrasted by the resulting images in their minimalistic and poetic form containing a range of history in terms of making, materials and aesthetics.
