This is a digital hybrid of the hand-painted cinegram cameraless film made as part of the Timeless Motion Exhibition which was on view at SOMArts Gallery located at 934 Brannen Street between 8th and 9th in San Francisco from February 18th to March 23rd. The satellite events were part of the community building efforts that were incorporated into the vision of SOMArts and the Timeless Motion curators.
Thanks sooo much to Renee Jones from the Sixth Street Photography Workshop.

In this two day workshop, we made 16mm "Cinegrams" directly onto the light senstive film, creating hand-exposed moving images. We achieved these images by placing objects and materials directly onto the film and casting their shadows upon the film with light. Students were provided with flashlights so they could literally sweep the light across the surface of the film stock to create the shadow inscriptions. We worked under red safelights, to explore the nature of the light sensitive medium to make these impressions by directly placing the objects on the film stock and waving the light over the surface. The workshop also covered hand- processing the film as a negative in trays. Students also applied ink on the film adding color and another layer of texture. This workshop took place at the Sixth Street Photography Workshop on March 3rd and 6th at 934 Brannen Street in San Francisco.
