Explain, please what 'fade to black' film is. As one DA said to me, "you must live under a rock." But occasionally I pop out to say "What is?"

they produced a film without the layer/chemical that usually stops the development in polaroid instant film....and so, over maybe 12 - 24 hours, the photograph is turning almost entirely black...you can only capture the image by scanning it as long as it is visible.

What was their thinking in doing that. had somebody already theorized an artistic use?

well, they discontinued the "time zero" film in 2004 (I think) - but with the expired chemical remains they produced the "TZ artistic" film (there are polaroids shot with this film in my gallery)...and my guess is, they ran out of this time stopping deal but continued to produce the film - hoping that it is sellable (after a test phase, to see how it reacts)...to me, it is kind of a rip off, cause they are selling it to you like it was the holy grail, which basically is not true, haha...I still wanted to try it out though (but I am not sure if I am going to buy another pack of these)

So the concept of its use as an 'art-film' is something they thought up, or just jumped on the concept. I guess the pictures themselves wouldn't be much good for preserving your 'treasured memories.' Maybe it would help you forget the less treasured ones!

yes exactly...when you lay them out in the sunlight (or even daylight) for several weeks / months the image is coming back though (darker and with slightly changed colors)...so we will see how they are looking after some time...
