Hyperanalogue Geekender & Party
Taking place over two days in November at The Photographers’ Gallery, our autumn Geekender explores the theme of HYPERANALOGUE, or what happens when 19th and 21st Century photography combines to create new creative possibilities. In collaboration with the London Alternative Photography Collective we will be taking over the Gallery spaces with workshops, demonstrations, performances and a party where you can sip cocktails in the darkroom bar and take in our Wim Wenders show after hours.
The weekend kicks off on Saturday with a daylong workshop with artist Richard Kolker, where participants will learn how to create a “photograph” in a 3D graphics programme. From 6pm will be open late for our HYPERANALOGUE party, featuring a live performance of Mechanical Techno by Graham Dunning, as well as Ryan L. Moule’s special darkroom experience. BBKP will be demonstrating their Frankenstinian cameras, and Almudena Romero can create a portrait of you in her CameraScanner studio. You can also get hands-on with Fujifilm’s Instax range, including their Fujifilm Instax SQ-10 Square instant camera and Instax Share SP-2 printer.
On Sunday, sign up to a workshop with art collective BBKP and discover how to convert a peanut shell into a pinhole camera. Ever wondered how a machine can see and understand a photograph? In this experimental workshop with Nicolas Malevé you can speculate on the future of visual literacy and photography’s role in the development of artifical intelligence and machine vision. There’s no need to book for our Sunday afternoon drop-in sessions, when Daniel Berrange and George Lincoln a.k.a. Crazy G’ Link will be demonstrating their DIY analogue-digital hybrid cameras on our Eranda floor from 1-3pm. Joining them will be Louise Beer and John Hooper who can help you take polaroid photos through a microscope.
