24. un 25. martā Latvijas Mākslas akadēmijā notiks Logroņo Mākslas skolas un
dizaina koledžas (Spānija) pasniedzēja Miguel Ropero vieslekcija un radošā
Mākslinieks apskatīs tēmas, kas saistītas ar fotogrāfiju un telpu.
Lekcijām nebūs tikai teorētisks skaidrojums, bet arī praktisks, ar iespēju
eksperimentēt ar fotoaparātiem un citām ierīcēm.
My idea is to review the relationship between photography and space, two concepts intrinsically related.
Each photograph is a spatial representation. In this seminar we will see examples of photographs whose relationship with space goes beyond. I will try to outline a historical account from the beginnings to contemporary stages in which we can find milestones, tendencies and singularities.
I would like the lectures to be not merely a theoretical explanation and that we could experiment with cameras and other devices to recreate or capture space.
Outline of the topics to deal with:
- Camera obscura and the Renaissance Euclidian perspective representation
- Different types of optics and their repercussion in space representation. Relationships with human vision.
- Non-Euclidian representations through photography: simultaneous visions in a single image.
- Binocularity. Recognition of distances and proportions of the objects placed in space. Stereoscopic devices for binocular vision reproduction.
- Alteration and recreation of space though photomontage (stitching of pictures. Puzzle representation by lack of wide angle.
- TILT and SHIFT, in order to correct perspective, reduce vanishing points and tilt so as to modify the focus field.
- Optical correction (or incorrection) by means of software.
- Light as basic element for the characterization of space.
- Colour: the subjective element.
- Low tech methods: the charm of spatial representation through alternative systems out of the habitual commercial environments: pinhole camera or other devices: Lomo, Olga, etc. The flaw as a virtue. Other odd devices.
- Space as subsidiary container element or as protagonist in itself.
- The creation of space through photography. Photographic reproduction of the reproduction. Ephemeral architectures created in order to be photographed.
- Playing with perspective: anamorphosis and homotecia.
- Photography in difficult spaces.
- Visualization of architectonic photographs that illustrate the previous contents.
