Circle 7: Artistic Research in Pictures

Circle 7: Artistic Research in Pictures

This year Circle 7 organised a different summer symposium in Oslo. We tried to focus on a few research questions, which guided us throughout the symposium, and which were approached by each participant in different ways.

“My experience of the NSU is the serendipitous benefit of the informal conversations with those sharing the time between sessions to share feelings that share the same interest in what turned up unexpectedly during those conversations.

In contrast, Nida is an example of a survived settlement, which changed…

Circle 10: Workshop “Preserved Bloom In Blue”

Circle 10: Workshop “Preserved Bloom In Blue”

The word cyanotype was derived from the Greek word “cyan”, meaning “dark-blue impression”. Cyanotypes are one of the oldest photographic printing processes in the history of photography. The distinctive feature of the print is its shade of cyan blue, which results from its exposure to ultraviolet light.  The workshop was meant to create a tangible trace of the nature around the Summer School 2022 spot — Oslo, Rønningen folkehøgskole — using a creative technique.  Key questions of the workshop: What…
