MONO: PHYTOGRAMS: FILMS CREATED WITH PLANTS AND NON-TOXIC DEVELOPER *sold out*

Day 10 of the MONO NO AWARE residency at Whammy!

In this one day workshop, a small group of 6 participants will work closely to learn the technique of creating moving image Phytograms on 16MM film, The technique can be used to render detailed chemical traces of plants directly on photographic emulsion. The delicate outline of the plant and the internal structure of leaves, flowers and petals is made visible in subtle colors, depending on the plant species and the photographic material used. The technique works on any type of photographic paper, but during these sessions we will work on 16MM motion picture film.

During the workshop we will cover the technique, placing it in a historical lineage of experimental photography and cinema, watching example works by contemporary filmmakers who apply this technique.  

Furthermore, the workshop provides a hands on demonstration and exercises for the participants, resulting in a collective work that will be projected at the end of the workshop. No prior film or photography skills needed. All materials provided.
