About the workshop

ManRay1923 (1).jpg

Rayograph (also called photogram) is a technique dating from the earliest days of photography consisting of putting more or less translucent objects on photosensitive paper or film and then exposing it to light and processing. Man Ray, who says have invented this practice, describes the photogram not as a mechanical copy but an unpredictable pictorial adventure.

In this 4 hours workshop, we will create 16mm black & white rayograph loops with 16mm print stock, objects brought by the participants, flash lights and chemicals. We'll make moving images sequences considering the film not as a succession of photograms but as a graphic and luminous continuity animated by the shutter of the projector in 24 frames per second.
Next to the magic of photo-chemical image creation, this workshop aims to be a nice collective experience, with people sharing ideas and putting their creativity together.

Workshop will be led by Carole Thibaud, a projectionnist and artist working with analog film, based in Nantes (France) and a member of the artist-run Film Lab MIRE.



Workshop is free of charge and open to everyone interested, no previous experience required. The participants are welcome to bring items that could be used to create images on 16mm film (plants, flowers, vegetables, small objects, fabrics, lace, textured paper...) and their own blouse or clothes that can be stained. Workshop space is limited, so please announce/register yourself to delavnica@ljudmila.org.

Workshop is part of Strictly Analog Festival in collaboration with Zavod Projekt Atol and Poligon Creative Centre. Supported by the Ministry of Culture and the City Municipality of Ljubljana.
