Image as Program - Panel Discussion
Sat 16th Mar 2024, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm AEDT

Join us at RMIT Gallery to listen and participate in a panel discussion which interrogates the photographic image’s most recent metamorphosis. AI represents the latest stage of photography’s transformation into a software output, cannibalising the camera and even transforming it into a set of executable text prompts. What does this mean for the future of the medium?

Salt printing | Artist workshop with Lingam. K
12:30 pm-3:30 pm, Sunday 21 April 2024

This workshop will introduce you to the basics of salt printing, creating a positive print from a negative using just three primary ingredients: salt, water, and silver nitrate. You'll learn how to hand coat art paper with light-sensitive chemicals, expose it with a negative to the sun (ultraviolet light), and process it to make a salt print. Salt prints have a unique matt appearance that resembles pastel drawings, and their tones range from warm reds to cold blacks.
