A Short Interview with Post-Image Research Cluster’s 2018-19 undergraduate student fellow: Eric Tschaeppeler

Questions
Year and Program of Study
Where did you grow up or where do you identify as your home place?
What interested you to pursue to images and/or photography?
What makes current image-making interesting to you?
Answers
Brought up in Gloucester, England. I moved continents four times but Montreal feels like home after having spent half my life here. Always as a bit of an outsider though, I think I like it like that. Music was my first passion. I composed and performed with bands for 30 years starting in the Punk and New wave days. Needing to give my ears a break and work alone, I switched to visual arts as they offered more support and more intellectual feedback/dialogue. I’m in my 5th year of a Photography BFA. Interested in family and social relationships and I am motivated by the unpacking of my own relationships as well as our present Socio-political and environmental challenges. Even though we are inundated with visual data I still find we can be touched by images and that they can tell a story.

Photos made by Artificial Intelligence


PHOTOS MADE BY ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

For all those who thought the invention of Photoshop changed the way we read photos, think again. Petapixel just publish an article about portraits made by AI, photos of people who never exists. This looks like the end of stock photography, but for artist, the fun times are only about to start!

AN ARTIST TALK WITH RADEK BROUSIL


AN ARTIST TALK WITH RADEK BROUSIL

THE POST IMAGE RESEARCH CLUSTER & CONCORDIA’S PHOTOGRAPHY DEPARTMENT PRESENT:

AN ARTIST TALK WITH RADEK BROUSIL

WEDNESDAY october 31, 2018 12.30-1:30

Radek Brousil was born in Nitra, in the Slovak republic. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, at the College of Communications in London UK, and the Photography program at Concordia University. He is currently a PhD Research Scholar at the Academy of Art, Architecture and Design in Prague, and an artist in residence at the Darling Foundry, Montreal. He lives and works in Prague and Berlin.

Radek Brousil often mixes objects, sculpture, photography and video in his artistic practice. His focus, however, is based on a broader investigation of photography – namely, on its technical and artistic properties as well as its current usage and socio-economic implications. Brousil is therefore mainly interested in displacements, gestures of appropriation, phenomena of misinterpretation and the non-existence of the “natural world” in the field of contemporary cultural and economic exchanges.

“Office Space” Exhibition | Post-Image member Matthew Brooks

Matthew-Brooks-Entertainment-Room-2016

“Office Space consists of large-scale photographs produced in institutional and governmental spaces. Using office furniture and decor as props, varying degrees of mise-en-scène are employed to create uncanny, empty sets. In these semi-fictional environments, the viewer’s sense of the real is disoriented through the manipulation of colour and form, revealing the tensions between reality and photographic representation. Through these obsessive and neurotic interventions, the frustration, rigidity, and absurdity of bureaucracy is revealed and made relatable through a collective experience of office politics and interactions.”

Summer Lab Hours – Important Information


SUMMER LAB HOURS – IMPORTANT INFORMATION

tumblr_nyrg7aLInd1qzdvk4o1_1280

The Post-Image Lab is closed to non-members for the month of July and will resume operations and normal hours to students and non-members in August. Inquiries can be sent to postimage.research@gmail.com but please note that response time for inquiries will be delayed as the coordinator is also out office for the month of July.

Important Updates:

1. Lab Closure

For the month of July, members may still use the lab but there will be no booking system available or technical support. It is on a first come first serve basis. We are well stocked with printing materials but if  you still run out of your favourite paper, there is nothing that can be done. If you do use the lab, please shake White and Metallic Silver ink cartridges on the solvent printer.

2. New VR Station 

There are a couple new stations at the back of the lab designed for VR research, which is being led by new post-image member Daniel Cross. Please don’t alter the placement of their setup. When the lab reopens at the beginning of August, we can rethink how to design the space for the upcoming academic year.

3. Welcome new members!

A warm welcome to new affiliate, student and faculty members to post-image! We are looking forward to a productive and exciting new year at post-image with several cross-cluster and interdisciplinary events in the works. Please do not hesitate to approach me (Pascha) about ideas you may have for events or questions concerning upcoming cluster activities for the 2018-19 academic year.

4. Upcoming end-of-summer event

We are hoping to have a meet and greet at the end of August or beginning of September at the Post-Image lab. This would be a great opportunity to share event ideas, projects-in-motion and new work among members. 

We will also be launching a catalogue of the 2017 print fundraiser to coincide with this event. 

More info on this event and how you can participate will be forthcoming in August.

Wishing everyone a safe and relaxing summer break. See you in August!
