VOX-POP presents ArtiShock. Every month on a Thursday, VOX-POP transforms into a workshop for chaos and creativity. From DJ classes to linocut workshops, each time you practice with a different art form. During this final edition of the year, we will learn how to make blueprints with Henri Blommers.
Event details of ArtiShock #8 Making blueprints
20 June 2024
16:00 -19:00
BG 3

On 20 June, we will be making cyanotypes, better known as blueprints. Cyanotype photography is a camera-less technique that involves laying an object on paper coated with a solution of iron salts and exposing it to UV light to create white and blue images.

For this workshop, Henri Blommers will bring all the necessary materials. For printing, he will collect and bring some plants, but you are free to bring your own flat (!) objects for printing as well, such as feathers, keys, or delicate plants. Please bring a plastic bag to transport your damp prints after the workshop.

He creates out-of-this-world dimensions full of bold colors, based on contemporary societal themes like plastic pollution, and digital influences on our lives. Henri is co-creator of Hello Gorgeous Magazine, founded to combat the stigma around HIV. In his projects, Henri materializes his images through a variety of techniques, for example by cooking film in plant material, soaking negatives in salt for weeks, or spraying agricultural chemicals on film.
