The history of visual experimentation by destabilizing light and development techniques is well known, from Man Ray and his Rayograph to Duane Michaels’ and Fouad Elkoury’s “ghosting” works. These get-your-hands-dirty workshops in English and Arabic will look at cultivating innovation and inventiveness around these photographic techniques, but we extend the invitation to artists working in experimental film/video and even printmaking. How can unexpected light sources— fire, flares, sunbursts, sparklers—help spark new creative outlooks on processes with which we’ve become perhaps too comfortable.
Attendees should bring a laptop with the editing software Premiere Pro, and a camera or phone to film and photograph with.
