Pinhole Workshop at Bibliotekspladsen + Open House in the Darkroom

Forget all about creating images in seconds. With the pinhole camera everything is slow – very slow. Vi have to go back to the birth of photography, where the process was importatn. Several minuts pass before the photo paper is exposed to the light and you never know for sure what the result will be.

A pinhole camera is a simple box with a hole and inside is a some film or photo sensitive paper. At the workshop, you can try out our pinhole cameras. The darkroom will be open, so you can get you image produced right there.

The participation fee is DKK 100 and you sign up via the library website.

Glem alt om hurtige billeder der er færdige på få sekunder. Med Pinhole camera /  Hulkamera går alting langsomt, meget langsomt. Vi er tilbage til fotografiets begyndelse hvor selve processen er vigtig. Der kan gå flere minutter før filmen eller fotopapiret er rigtig belyst og man ved aldrig med sikkerhed hvordan resultatet bliver. 

Et hulkamera er ganske enkelt en kasse med et hul i og i kassen er der film eller fotopapir. På dagens workshop har vi hulkameraer du kan eksperimentere med. Der er åbent i mørkekammeret, så dine eksperimenter bliver fremkaldt på stedet. Mulighed for drop-in på dagen

Det koster 100 kr at deltage. Udgiften dækker materialer.

Tilmelding via biblioteket.                               


From 100 Year Old Negatives to NFTs

Do you know what an NFT is? Do you know what use it has or how to purchase one? Many of us have no clue about NFTs, the potential of this new blockchain technology or even its use and influence on the art world. But on NFT Friday 10 June you can get wiser on all of this when we invite you to join us for an afternoon about NFT technology and photography. Together with EyeEye.me we investigate its potentials, possibilities and the many new perspectives NFT’s have in relation to art, archives and photography.

Join us for NFT Friday

Friday 10 May Copenhagen Photo Festival invites everyone with an interest in photography, art or archives to join us at the Festival Center for NFT Friday, a talk and workshop on NFT technology with the three guys behind the Danish online NFT gallery EyeEye.me. The eyeopening afternoon begins with a talk and ends with a workshop about art and NFTs.

The Blossom Expedition

The  Copenhagen based online gallery will talk about their own story and how art and technology can benefit from each other. They use the NFT-technology to turn old negatives from The Blosson Expedition, an Atlantic expedition, into digital art on the blockchain.

When the three-masted schooner Blossom traveled the Atlantic Ocean in the 1920s, exploring exotic locations in Africa and South America, its crew members could hardly have imagined that the photographic records of their expedition would become the focal point of an art project almost 100 years later.

From 100 year old negatives to NFTs

Had anyone tried to explain to them what the project entailed, they would have dismissed it as pure science fiction. Indeed, the technological gap between the fragile, faded negatives that still exist as memories of ‘the Blossom Expedition’ and today’s digital space is almost unimaginable. Nevertheless, it has been bridged by three Danes who decided to join forces and introduce a way of making art that is quite unusual in Denmark.

Unique digital art objects

The idea of making digital art out of the negatives was born. Marc Fluri, Sebastian Tiku Lybecker and the third project member, Jesper Munk, decided to conduct an experiment – they would transform some of the photographs from the expedition into NFTs, turning something that was never thought of as artistic into unique digital art objects.

After the talk, Eye Eye’s own crypto currency expert, Jesper Munk, will give an introduction to how you can purchase NFT’s yourself.

Programme for NFT Friday

16-17 Eye Eye talk.

The talk will be in Danish and will take place in the Festival Cinema at Frame and is open for all with a Festival Pass
