A small group of 6 people, a Super 8 camera, black & white film. We head into the forest and let ourselves be guided by mood and coincidence. We film and collect the ingredients for the development afterwards: what the forest provides (bark, leaves, lichens, berries …). We use it to brew a kind of “forest tea”: the essence of the forest!
Mixed together with washing soda and vitamin C powder, this results in a powerful broth that has the ability to convert silver salts into metallic silver – the magic of photography, the creation of an image. The resulting film can be seen as a digital version in the gallery.
