Make it big -and blue: a life sized Cyanotopie Workshop with Andreas Kesberger
Start: 29.07.2017, 14:00 h
Duration: circa 4 h
Workshop Fee: 39,90 € (Couples 75 ,00 €)
The Workshop is limited to 16 persons.

Summer, sun, cyano. Photography lives off the sun, and especially over the summer. It is possible to see how the sun develops an image with its power. In this workshop with Andreas Kesberger we will first work based on a black and white negative (please bring your own file) which will be printed and from this, we will create a blue Cyanotopie copy in fabric, in A4 format (22 x 29cm). But the story does not end there.
Make Cyanotypes great again.
We are as big as life. Thanks to a process based on contact, we will project the image to produce a Cyanotopie which will be 75 cm x 2.13m big. We will do this with elements which participants bring themselves, or using our own shadow.
If couples would like to create a couple-portrait, then we can create this in a textile piece which will be 1.5m wide and 2.13 m tall.
It will all be developed in an environmentally sound process, using water. Then, it will just need to be dried, folded and taken home.
The Internet of fishes – Environmental Monitoring and Open Data
Duration: Open. Participants can join at any time.
Participation Fee: Free. The event is offered by the non-profit association basis.wissen.schafft e.V.
What´s in the water when it flows out of the tap? Or what is in the water in the rivers or lakes?
During the first part of the workshop, participants will learn about the water cycles and its relevance for the environment. During the second half, they will show how to take water samples from the Spree river to discover what is in it. Participants will go in groups of 2-3 people to the water (or to a nearby aquaponic project) to determine what is in the water. Additionally, they will photograph the venue where the samples are taken to document the surrounding environment and locate it in GPS coordinates. These data will be published on OpenSenseMap, which will allow participants to learn about Open Data and Citizen Science.
The workshop is open, participants can join anytime and for as long as they can. Participants can also bring water from home to have it tested. To document the whole process, a mobile phone can do, but cameras are also OK.
The workshop is free to attend, as part of an Open-Data project and is offered by scientific experts from the non-profit association basis.wissen.schafft e.V. and is a part of the project #meerdavon, Berlin is on the North Sea in the framework of the 2017/2018 Science Year of Oceans and Seas.
The workshop takes place within the cooperation between basis.wissen.schafft e.V. and as a reference to the 2017 Theme “Everything Flows”.
