PRESENTATION OF PHOTOGRAPHS IN LEICA GALLERY CAFÉ
THE FOTOIMAGO PROJECT: MILOTA HAVRÁNKOVÁ AND HER STUDENTS AT BRATISLAVA ACADEMY OF FINE ARTS AND DESIGN (AFAD)
9. 9. – 20. 11. 2016
In 2000, Milota Havránková was invited to collaborate with the Hewlett-Packard corporation on developing designer clothing using digital photography. The multinational IT company, which had long been following her creative and systematic interest in widening the applications of photography and silk screen printing in textile design, decided to support the textile-photographic workshop she was running at her Creative Photography Studio at AFAD, Bratislava, by supplying all the photographic material she needed as well as the all-important plotters and silk.
Besides Milota Havránková, those involved in the project were Jana Hojstričová, Jana Ilková, Ján Ondrejka, Tomáš Poruben, Soňa Sadloňová, Silvia Saparová, Kristína Schraeiberová, Silvia Slavkovská, Juraj Staško and Ján Záborský.
THE CREATION OF TEXTILE PHOTOGRAPHS
HP lent the college a digital camera, scanners, PCs and plotters. The students chose particular objects, photographed them, and processed the images on the computer. Using a plotter, they then printed the photographs on one-metre square sheets of silk, which they sewed together to make garments that were as simple as possible. The most interesting thing about the results was that the enlarged or otherwise modified photographs printed on silk looked quite different from conventional photographic prints.
