On January 7, 1839, physicist Dominique François Jean Arago read a report on the achievements of Nysephor Niepce and Louis Daguer in the Paris Academy of Sciences and showed a photograph taken with a camera obscura, stating that "from now on the sun beam became an obedient draftsman of everything around." This date went down in history as the birthday of photography, the technology of registration of light that is so much in demand today, which is accessible to absolutely everyone.
Celebrating the 180th anniversary of this event, the Garage Museum invites visitors of all ages to take part in the interactive project “Art Experiment. Wonder of the World ”, which offers to touch the“ miracle ”of photography - in the literal translation of“ photography ”(from the Greek. Φωτός,“ light ”, and γραφ,“ letter ”).
The “Art Experiment” is organized as a fascinating journey through the Museum accompanied by a guide, during which viewers find themselves in a real camera obscura to experience amazement at the ingenious simplicity of the physical laws of the propagation of light in space (installation “Platonic obscurantism” by artist and architect Cyril Ass). They will learn what discoveries in the field of chemistry made it possible to preserve the “light-delineated” image and get acquainted with the device of the first cameras (animation film “Wonder of the World”, created for “Art-experiment” by the artist and director Daniel Zinchenko).
In the Pinhole Workshop, all participants can make a pinhole camera with a pin hole (pin-hole) instead of a lens from a regular matchstick box. In the Workshop of Cyanotype, visitors meet with one of the oldest photo printing techniques, which allows you to create, for example, a New Year postcard using ultraviolet rays. In the DADA-Lab space - an equipped photo lab with a red light - you can feel like an avant-garde artist and experiment in the open dadaist photogram technique. At the end of the route, a photographic studio “Frozen Light” awaits visitors, where, thanks to shooting at long exposures, you can “stop” and fix the light in the most bizarre forms. Created on the "Art-experiment" of the participants can take with them.
“Art Experiment” is the flagship project of the Garage Museum public program, launched in 2010. Each of the following “Art Experiment” is not similar to the previous one, however, the main actor of the project is always the audience with whom the Museum offers to discover a child and / or an artist.
