Join A+E for a hands-on workshop that practices slowness as an act of resistance.

“On the juice of Plumbago auriculata the lavender and violet rays produced a pale brown image; the indigo rays had no effect, while all the rest of the image under the mean and least refrangible rays was blue and indigo.” Mary Somerville.

Amid the mass consumption of images and the permanent carbon cost of data storage, the anthotype represents a more transient and precarious form of artistic production and expression. In tune with GZF’s DIY spirit, we’ll experiment with sunlight, stencils and temporalities of exposure to create ephemeral letters to the future through images which cannot be 'fixed'. Layered with the atmospheric, chemical phenomena of the present these letters will become quiet and intimate acts of care and resistance.
