„WABI-SABI AT NON-PLACES – A film project about perception of a city
Experimental film-development workshop and a city walk to strange places

Wernerstr. 21
Dresden Löbtau

n February I was invited to give a 3 day workshop on super 8 and wabisabi inspired easy film making plus hand processing in Dresden! The place is called Werk.Stadt.Laden. (something like city working station atelier), a self made artist run alternative hipiesque sweet place which I can absolutely recommand (they also offer knitting meetings, silkscreen for children, edit a neighborhood magazine >>>

3 days, 13 people, half my age (ohmygod) but what the fuck, there's no big difference: passion and enthusiasm and joy for experimental filming know no age, ha!

(We used Kodak's TriX material and developed it in Adonal. What came out was black and white negative film. Extremely beautiful and a wide range of greys!)

And right there's a link to a film made by Hilke & Caro: super, weird and a little spooky but with Schnaps and shower! >>>

Later we digitized all films and reversed them to positive!
