The Hybrid Image: paint and pixels
Uncover the endless possibilities of alternative digital printing and expand the scope of your art-making toolbox. Digital cameras and smartphones allow photographers to capture images of the everyday ordinary as well as the ephemeral extraordinary. But so often these images are lost to the digital cloud. In this workshop, participants print onto film and transfer the images to paper, metal and plexiglass. Students build their images letting the original stand or by adding acrylic painting and drawing to their work. Photographic processes that apply to image-making are presented, as well as correct cutting and adhesive procedures. The week’s work results in a broadened idea of what the Hybrid image can achieve visually as well as a deepened appreciation for the almost limitless possibilities in image making.
