Very enjoyable slide-making workshop (without camera) at the star and shadow. Slides deconstructed, attacked, reassembled from whatever is around and projected on the cinema screens. Followed by some hardcore Miles Davis and some projector freestyling......niiiiiiiice.

1. The Photography as a Game
The aim of work-shop is to increase the creative potency of
photography as a visual means of expression. Making slides from available articles as well as used ones is a task that is "unlock" the creative mind and imagination for new challenges and gives an opportunity for various interpretations such as photographic negative, projection and video.
2 Work-shop process
The students are making hand made slides which they can see on the wall right after their results. When the picture comes from two projectors the slides are transfusing each to other and it creates a motion. Thus the video records of the moving pictures could be used as an additional space installation. On the other hand each one produced piece can be materialized as a print or negative.
