On Tuesday 27th at Savitri Bhavan opened the exhibition Cyclone Inversions by Gotz Rogge an artist and an experimental photographer from Berlin, Germany. He organized a workshop with Sasi Somu, the teacher of photography and art at the Future School. It involved some students to make large scale Camera Obscura photographic artifacts about the landscape generated by the cyclone. In the interview (in English) Gotz, Sasi and the student Gal explain us about their experience. Their work is shown untill the 3rd of April. - www.heimat.de/halqa
The Camera Obscura was made in two ways. One was into a camping tent with the choice to use one of the two holes at two different levels. Inside they could put one or two large photographic papers to be impressed from the light entering from the hole (called stenopaic hole). They used other two Camera Obscura, two big cardboard boxes which they especially ordered to develop the workshop. They also used various colored filters to obtain different color in the photographs. The subject of the pictures is the landscape they found around them. The way to show it is with a not visible horizon to recognize, but with different points of view, which brings the audience to discover a new universe in nature. In the soundscape of the interview's background we can hear a Gotz's musical composition named Intrauterin # 1.
