Workshop (2018) with Antony Cairns
For one week Ecals bachelor students had the chance to work with photographer and artist Antony Cairns. The workshops aim was to investigate a variety of processes within the history of photography.
Since the invention of the medium, photography has shared a close relationship with technology. Students had the chance to explore a range of forgotten techniques and machines to create artworks around the theme of time while researching its connection to other art pieces, films, books, and images that shared the same theme.
Cairns' practice has been hugely inspired by cyberpunk science fiction and Futurology. These subject matters led him to explore new ways to interpret the photographic medium.
