DIY Cameras for Printmakers

Event Type: Demos

Participants will gain an understanding of the process of designing, building, and using a well-crafted, aesthetically pleasing DIY camera. Examples of the various phases of construction will be displayed. The demonstration will focus on the fundamental considerations of design, including both optimal function as well as aesthetic value of the camera as tool and as an object. Instruction will be given regarding the use of the camera to generate negatives to be used in photomechanical processes such as collotype and serigraphy in addition to alternative processes such as cyanotype and gum printing. Examples of such work will be provided.
