the impossible project
Polaroid globally stopped the production of analog Instant Film in June 2008, closing the factories in Mexico and the The Netherlands. It was a sad day to many Polaroid aficionados. But it was perhaps not the end of it all. The Impossible company want to re-invent and re-produce analog integral film for vintage Polaroid cameras.
The company's goal is not to re-build Polaroid Integral film but to develop a new product with new characteristics. Impossible rents Building North (10,000 m2) in Enschede, The Netherlands. It has always been the heart of Integral film production. Ranging from simple screwdrivers via special spare parts up to 10 giant Integral Film assembly machines, all machinery and tools needed to develop and produce up to 100 million new Integral Instant films per year are present in Building North.
Wow. This sounds like a...possible re-invention!
