Constructed Landscapes Slide-collaging Workshop with Dafna Talmor In this hands-on slide collaging workshop, participants are provided with an archive of 35mm found vintage slides and invited to appropriate images by making physical interventions. Tampering with the materiality of the surface by collaging, drawing, scratching or layering fragments of the reconfigured transparencies, participants will re-project the slides and photograph them digitally. Participants will get to keep their one-off collaged slides as well as digital files of the projected images they produce, which can be printed and manipulated further beyond the workshop. In dialogue with historical as well as contemporary processes that engage with the materiality of film - from Pictorialism and Modernism to current photographic practice - the workshop presents the opportunity to combine analogue and digital processes, experiment with different materials and enables participants to produce work in a short space of time that reflects the medium's malleability and versatility in a playful way.
