Library -- 35mm Slide Tea Light Craft

Friday, October 19, 2018

ALXE Contemporary is coming to the Artesia Public Library. We will have a special photography craft. We will be making tea light holders out of 35mm slides. All materials are provided. Ages 12+ Visitors bring a small object of personal significance, and enter the mobile studio and sit for a black and white photo portrait while holding the object. The objects brought are as diverse as the participants. Objects have included car keys, photos of loved ones on cell phones, artworks, tools, books, food, toys, and vintage collectibles. Three copies of each portrait are immediately printed with the gallery’s solar-powered printer. One is given to the participant, another is pasted to the exterior of the vehicle, creating a mobile and growing exhibition throughout the span of the project. The third print will later be included in an exhibition in a regional museum or art center. At the close of the project Axle Contemporary Press will publish a book containing all of the portraits.
