Contact Printer workshop

On February 27th and 28th, the collective in residence Crater-lab gives the workshop Contact Printer at Hangar.

In this creative and experimental 16 mm copying workshop, the group will provide the necessary tools to use the Contact Printer, which allows making identical duplicates both from positive to negative and vice versa, offering multiple creative possibilities through the combination of light, color (RGB) and speed: alteration and modification of an original quickly and effectively, experimentation with different emulsions to multiply the textures, use of masks, overlapping of development processes and others that allow the creation of improbable images.

The workshop will revolve around the following ideas:

– Comparison: photo enlarger/still image vs. contact copier/moving image
– Different emulsions: camera film vs. lab film
– The “color print film” —color copy film— designed for specific laboratory use
– Working with safety light in the darkroom, as well as different possibilities of developing processes
– Color developing processes: ECN (Eastman Color Negative), ECP (Eastman Color Positive), E6. Cross and solarized…
– Creative possibilities of photochemical copying.
– DYS contact copiers: camera, projector, viewer, synchronizer, light table…
