Remember back in March when I was a guest contributor on the George Eastman House Blog? My post, Riding Around In A Camera, was a look back on my experience with the Liminal Camera in response to my visit to GEH to check out the Silver and Water exhibition.
There are two really great events, presented by Metabolic Studio, coming up next week in conjunction with Silver and Water. I will be attending both – join me!
Tuesday, May 7 at 7 pm
Visual Studies Workshop
Pinhole Cinema and an Aesthetic of the Handmade
Robert Schaller will present a theoretical framework for pinhole filmmaking and discuss the implications of the handmade as a part of photography in general. The presentation will be part talk and part film show, illustrated by screenings of Robert’s short handmade pinhole films and documentation of other handmade projects.
Wednesday, May 8 at 6 pm
George Eastman House
An 8-foot by 12-foot negative of Kodak’s chemical factory has sat for the last two months soaking in a shallow bath of water at the George Eastman House, its silver image slowly decaying. Now Bon and her team invite the public to participate in a darkroom performance—the South Gallery will be converted into a darkroom for the evening, and a giant contact print will be made with audience participation.
please note: I took the photos of the exhibition above back in March – the print submerged in the water has greatly degraded since then.
