Day One: Space
The workshop will present historical and recent film examples on how to approach space with the means of the moving image. These will be explained in their structural approach and also technical methods (for example optical printing and contact printing). Mathematical patterns and editing structures. Maps and their different perspectives as a guide. Camera positions and the moving camera. Three dimensional film making, and collection of visual knowledge.
Day two: Found Footage
Existing moving imagery and it’s artistic use.
Concerns of aspect ratios and sound formats – their technical parameters and ways of working with these. Copying and printing from analogue and digital sources, optical and magnetic soundtracks through time and their actual use.
Johann Lurf is an artist and filmmaker, using the moving image to analyze and restructure space and film. His practice involves observational and documentary filmmaking especially in the field of structural film, as well as an approach to found footage which is strongly oriented on filmic language itself.
