October 10th 2PM: Light Unseen with Kathrin Günter

Thought is a radiant, creative, almost material power, the fiat lux of
the bible. During the process of thinking, the soul turns the atoms of
the brain into waves and makes its phosphor glow. With concentrating
ones thought onto any object with simple outlines, like a bottle for
example, the fluidic thought image will be forced out through the eyes
to expose itself through the power of its glow onto the photographic
plate. The result is a photographic image.

[Louis Darget, 1911]

In "Light Unseen" participants will try, throughout a variety of
thoughto-photographic experiments, to focus, force, project and
possibly expose thoughts onto photosensitive materials. 

All necessary materials, including photographic emulsion, chemicals,
film, paper and polaroid will be provided. Containers or devices may be
constructed here or welcome to be brought along. 

Thoughts are welcome. Results cannot be promised.

Kathrin Günter, artist and photographer has been exploring extensively
gossip, star behaviour and the phenomenon of paparazzi photography.
Recent researches include thoughtographic theories, practises and other
invisible phenomena of the early twentieth century.


No experience required.

Cost: €10 per participant (this includes materials, and food)
