An image to show the artwork Connections by Krystle Silverfox

UBC Okanagan Gallery in collaboration with the Indigenous Art Intensive program invites you to join interdisciplinary artist Krystle Silverfox to learn the art of glitching landscape photography.

In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn about digital negatives and basic code manipulation of digital photographs. We will explore a process of text-based coding to create unexpected glitches within landscape photographs. Participants will experiment and play with provided landscape photography, and learn how to create abstracted landscape photographs without Photoshop.

This workshop is free and open to the public. No previous knowledge of coding is required. Participants may bring their own laptop or can use one of the computers in the lab where the workshop is hosted.

To register please contact Ryan Trafnanako at ryan.trafananko@ubc.ca by Friday, June 7 at noon.
