March 14th 2009 2PM: open working group [Kirlian photography] // presentation

the conversion of nonelectrical properties of the object being
photographed into electrical ones... with a direct transfer of charges
from the object to the photographic plate.

[Kirlian and Kirlian, 1961]

Kirlian photography effects a transition or translation, a series of
exchanges which are subject to varying, over-determined
interpretations. Photographic emulsions and imaging techniques are
explicitly opened to the electromagnetic, acting as a medium for
another form of perception, an exchange primarily between biologic
systems and presencing or bringing to light.

open_kirlian is the first in a new series of working groups projecting
the intense, collective one day investigation of diverse research
fields relating to core concerns. The open_kirlian working group will
explore the domain of Kirlian photography, from the production of a
high frequency, high voltage supply, through experimentation with
varying photographic processes and techniques towards the assessment
of Kirlian process images using [in]organic specimens under varying
conditions. Participants are welcome to bring relevant documentation,
high voltage supplies or components, digital or analogue cameras or
materials, objects to be imaged within the Kirlian process. All
participants take part at their own risk.

The working group will briefly present the afternoon's research at
8PM. All welcome.




Fee: 5 euros (parts and food, presentation: free)

Workshops led by field-expert practitioners extend over realms of code
and embedded code, environmental code, noise, transmission and
reception, and electromysticism. Workshops solely utilise free
