Found Images Workshop invites artists of all experience levels to experiment with found imagery in  the black + white darkroom and digital workstation. Participants will discuss and explore traditional and current methods to modify and manipulate imagery including:  solarization, collage, sandwiching negatives, scanograms, paper negatives and more….  Concepts that will be explored include: copyright, power of the owner/viewer, identity, place and slight of hand.

The workshop will begin by discussing found imagery brought in by participants and continue on to examine contemporary artists working with the found image including: Birthe Piontek, William Eakin, Joachim Schmid, Laura St. Pierre and more… The workshop will also take a tour through Cut-Up, a group exhibition with Lisa Stinner-Kun, Kristan Horton, Ming Hon + Kelsey Braun exploring the influence of collage on lens-based media, featuring video, performance, installation and photography.

Participants are encouraged to bring in found imagery/objects (analogue or digital). All other materials will be supplied.  Please bring a bag lunch.

Lindsey Bond is a lens-based artist born in Edmonton, currently based in Winnipeg, Bond received her BFA in Photography from Emily Carr University of Art + Design, and studied Visual Communications at Edinburgh College of Art.  Lindsey creates collaborative photographic and video works that explore the starting points of culture and sidelines of community. She works with a documentary ethic that speaks to an intentional combination of research, analogue processes and intuition.  Subjects that focus her practice include: contemporary Canadian railway culture, chalk messages in urban space and the bridge as gateway and barrier.  Bond’s work has been exhibited across Canada.
