In the one-day workshop, participants will use photographic contact exposure processes such as cyanotype and deal with the topic of still life and sustainability. To do this, the workshop goes on a search for traces of the magical and meaningful objects of the art producers and art educators at the spinning mill. What are art-related objects? Which things have a long-lasting and therefore sustainable value as sources of spiritual inspiration? The common goal is to bring together an auratic collection of objects, which will be preserved in the form of photograms and encourage reflection on a sustainable art experience. The process-based work and changing of exhibition objects and their constellations is a tried-and-tested approach in Mathias’ artistic research process, which moves at the interface of art and science.

To do this, Mathias often uses methods from field research and observational ethnography.
