The Experimental Darkroom - CAEL3019

This advanced darkroom unit challenges students to rediscover photography in the age of the jpeg. Through two projects, the unit introduces the wet and wonderful world of alternative analogue processes to encourage students to produce experimental images that consider the conceptual, material and alchemical possibilities of the 'outmoded'. The unit also encourages the development of hybrid practices that combine contemporary digital technology with analogue processes.
