From April 11 to 15, ten lab members worked with Lutz Garmsen to learn the ins and outs of the Crass animation and optical printing equipment. After 5 days of intense work we were able to set up a fully functioning animation table with the option of shooting on either 16, super 16 or 35mm, plus the option of using rear projection on 16mm. We also set up a optical printing bench that allows us to do 16mm optical printing and blow ups from 16mm to 35mm.
Thanks to Lutz Garmsen for all the help and guidance. We’re eager to see the great new works that the machines will allow LaborBerlin members to bring into the world!

As the LaborBerlin Pilot Artist in Residence (July 2016), I was asked to work with the lab’s newly acquired Crass Animation Stand and Optical Printer System. This was an opportunity to advance past work involving interference patterns, or the “Moiré effect”.
