Social [Practice]: #9 – Giant DIY Camera Weekender
Sat 09 Mar 2019
10.30am - 4pm
Photographer Brendan Barry will host the final Social [practice] session this season. Brendans creative photographic practice combines elements of construction, education, performance and participation. He transforms objects and environments into cameras and uses the mechanics of photography as a tool for exploration and collaboration.
Spend the weekend with Brendan and build an Ultra Large Format Camera big enough to operate from the inside, construct a makeshift pop up darkroom, channel and control a combination of natural and artificial light – use it all to learn the mechanics of photography and create a series of 16×20 traditional analogue black & white photographic prints to take away.
Social [practice] sessions offer an alternative forum for artists and creative producers to explore sharing / meeting and making / hosting / skill exchange and collaborative practice.
Meet and make together over a drink with a series of practical projects hosted by creative practitioners.
