Direct animation and emulsion lifts.
“Lift Off” is a workshop examining material manipulations of 16mm film. The workshop will focus primarily on the emulsion lift and reticulation technique to explore degradation and decay. An emulsion lift is where film is immersed in a hot sodium carbonate solution, this causes the emulsion to reticulate and separate from the films base. Once separated the emulsion can be placed on a variety of separate materials; including another piece of clear film. This technique will combine direct animation with photochemical manipulation; to present a cohesive survey of material investigations to workshop participants.
Taylor Dunne and Eric Stewart are artists currently living in Colorado (USA). They share an affinity for 16mm filmmaking, and use photochemical processes as a means to explore the interconnectedness of time, history and the landscape. They are currently collaborating on a film investigating the history of uranium mining and nuclear weapons testing in the American Southwest.
