PREPARE TO EXPERIMENT
I look forward to meeting with students and experimenting and collaborating with the place (Bergen...), processes and materials. We will dig deeper into the urban environment, collecting together fragments of a landscape and pushing the possibilities of working with found materials and images to the limit.
Gather and glean both inspiration and literal material from the surrounding suburb and city ¿ be it colour, structure, history, plans and blueprints, wood, metal, dust¿
¿ Gather ¿ images (past, present and future)
¿ Gather ¿ materials
¿ Bring a camera. Document your process. What happens along the way could be more important than the destination and hi res images of the work in progress could become the work or open up new possibilities for new work.
SITE SPECIFIC PRINTMAKING: AN URBAN PALETTE
How to make a site-specific print of a place? working with the site as resource and collaborator. What is Møllendal or indeed Bergen made of? What would an urban palette of this place be?
Introduction to various possible processes and the potential of materials including:
Photocopy etch ¿ low tech image transfer process on stone or metal or as monoprint.
Collagraph working with collaged found materials, rubbings
Pigment washes and stencil dustings
Basic pop-up/ paper architecture.
Applying traditional methods to nonconventional materials eg found wood, metal.
Experiments with stone lithography on other stones and bricks, participatory giant woodcut printing from construction site hoardings.
