In this workshop participants were introduced to the basic principles of a darkroom for photography and alternative photography with light-sensitive emulsion. Among other things, they worked with developing chemicals and investigating how a photo enlarger is used. Participants made their own alternative surfaces and carriers for our own prints!
Participants worked with all kinds of materials to create the substrate that best suits each theme and subject we choose to preserve.
In a society that increasingly documents and presents life digitally, it is also more important to think about the physical means we still have to record and store things.
What is left to capture?; is inspired by the notion of the importance of holding and preserving resources that are taken for granted in our lives, but which are actually slowly disappearing. These can be changes that are taking place worldwide due to climate change, but also on a smaller scale in our environment, culture or even our personal lives.
In a world dominated by digital techniques, there is also a need for physical methods that require personal skills and artistic input.
In this workshop they therefore investigated with Krisztina Czika how we can capture, preserve and present our memories with the medium of alternative photography in addition to the digital world.
Krisztina Czika is of Hungarian origin and studied Clothing and Textiles at the Budapest School of Art before moving to Amsterdam in 2012. There she continued her education at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, where she graduated in 2017. Czika is now an acclaimed artist who has exhibited in many different places in the world and who also offers workshops in which ecological problems are central. For example, the workshop she is now giving in Aruba is a follow-up to a similar, very successful project in Sri Lanka. Krisztina was already a guest at Ateliers89 in 2018, where she made musical instruments from recycled paper as a resident with a group of participants.
