CYANOTYPE 16MM FILMMAKING
1 session + Screening Party
This one-day workshop led by visiting artist Meg Rorison will demonstrate how to coat clear 16mm leader with cyanotype chemistry to achieve moving image cyanotypes. Using pre-coated stock, you'll work to craft and compose thoughtful 5-6' image sequences at a time and expose properly in the sun, to process in the water based "developer" and finally project images on film! The simple, DIY procedure yields brilliant blue imagery through the processes of making photo-grams and contact printing. Participants will learn to use this 19th-century photographic process in combination with 16mm film to create their own photo-grams or contact prints without traditional equipment. Participants are encourage to bring translucent fabrics, small objects, and 16mm negatives to be used in the creation of their own cyanotype film though all the necessary materials will be provided.
