About the workshop


Every photograph is ambiguous-the image is fixed, but the meaning is not. The meaning changes, depending on how the picture is presented and what’s around it.
In this five-day workshop of rigorous games and exercises, using your pictures, we will experiment with this topic. We will try to exhaust the possible meanings of your images. We will think in both abstract & literal ways; with emotion and logic; with poetry and judgment. And we will let chance be our guide.

A few of our guiding heroes will be Sarah Charlesworth, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, and Raymond Queneau.

You should come with an open mind, a sense of humor and a strong work ethic. The desired outcome is a way of thinking and living that generates rich and layered meanings.
