“You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.” Bruce Lee
In the darkroom, Water and mysterious fluids pours onto photographic black and white paper. Exposed to a flash of light and then developed with photographic chemicals. Artist and Instructor Jeremy Lynch will guide participants in learning how to work with this cameraless process to revealing beautiful abstract imagery. By exposing the participants to a graceful messy, experimental process that ignores the rules of analog photography. The class ends with curating, creating a montage together from the workshop that will later be wheat-pasted (uncommissioned) on the street; by Jeremy Lynch at a later date.
Water and its assistant Jeremy Lynch are excited to revitalize the project Pieces of Water at G44, an informal workshop that began in 2013 to 2015 in Berlin/Reykjavik.
No previous darkroom experience is required, all materials will be provided.
