Art and Tech Social: Experimental Capture

January 10th 2017, 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

FREE, monthly, hands-on workshops for artists, technologists, creative practitioners and the intrigued. The workshops will demonstrate different forms of tech & digital alongside delicious free food and drinks. Each workshop is led by a different leading practitioner in their field.

Explore the potential of new and different image-capture technologies to reveal new ways of documenting your art, with Artist Pete Ashton.

We start with a short discussion about documentation in general and how basic photography and video can fail to do your work justice. Participants are invited to bring their stories and lessons to share with the group. With these in mind we then explore some alternative methods.

Subjects covered will include:

  • Slo-mo and time-lapse. Seeing how we can control time to illuminate change.
  • Photogrammetry. Extracting 3D models of objects from simple video.
  • Alternative wavelengths. Exploring how recording infra-red, ultraviolet, heat and radio waves can be used in artistic documentation.
  • Depth sensors. Using the gaming tool Kinect to record distance alongside colour.
  • After Hockney. Using photo-merge and montage to represent many moments in one image.

And much more…

No programming or technical knowledge is required. Due to time constraints you’ll be invited to try one technique in small groups.

Pete Ashton  is an artist whose BOM Fellowship (2014-2016) has seen him exploring the new frontiers of cameras and their role in society. He recently attended Golan Levin’s Experimental Capture course which will inform this session along with PhotoViz by Nicholas Felton.
