This weekend - OKO at sound 2013, Aberdeen

Leeds Art Gallery Residency 059
This weekend OKO will be travelling up to Aberdeen to run a 16mm cameraless film workshop for sound 2013. Part of the Scratch series curated by Katherine Groo, the weekend also features a screening of filmwerks by Ian Helliwell - “composer, filmmaker, instrument builder, installation artist, live performer, radio and film programmer, light show projectionist, teacher and writer".

Participants will be introduced to film as a tactile and physical medium, and encouraged to experiment with different camera-less filmmaking techniques, including drawing, painting, scratching, and making marks on the filmstrip.  You'll also learn how to use a 16mm projector and experiment with the filmstrip as it is projected. The workshop will culminate with a double projection screening/performance of the film created during the session.

The workshop will run from 11am-3pm at Peacock Visual Arts on Sunday 22nd September.
