Workshop/laboratory: landscape of film

The idea of the laboratory was the way of dealing with the film stock beyond its limits. Imagine the film as a landscape that grows through diferent interventions which leave the traces and lead to uncommon visual experience. We chose colour Super 8 mm film that is common among amateur or/and experimental filmmakers.

There were four steps:
1/ various techniques of exposition with film camera
2/ colour development process (E6) and the posibility of chemical manipulation during the development
3/ physical and chemical intervention into the film stock
4/ the expanded projection techniques

Materials: Kodak Ektachrome, Tetenal Development Kit for E6, kitchen bleach, etc.
Equipment: Super 8 mm film cameras (Bauer, Yashika, Chinon, etc.), Lomo development tank UPB, film projectors (Canon, Elmo, Eumig, Rus 2), various optical objects, etc.
