Friday-Saturday, March 27-28, 2015.

The video below was produced in the Re/Lens workshop, conducted by Amir Husak and Melissa Friedling at Union Docs

DESCRIPTION: Workshop participants worked in a group of three (3) to creatively exploit artifacts and idiosyncrasies of both digital and analog systems. Retrofitting a variety of vintage lenses and other peculiar optics, they produced hybrid analog/digital images that challenge the prevailing, medium-induced aesthetics. The main objective of these exercises was to explore the space between digital and analog, vintage and contemporary, simulated and real, and aim for new aesthetic possibilities.
