After feedback from Westallee it seems like I should do Illumat further. This time for Night of a 1000. , the biggest and the last event from them. It happened once a year and they will sell (auction) all pictures from Doodle-session for a whole in this event. All money go donate to Abiwest and STELP. I was asked a few weeks before the night and this time , Illumat was not only me inside. I worked together with an artist "Jascha".
Because we both have totally different drawing styles. So we decided to switch more often. So the people couldn't expect in each style from us. Furthermore they get a portrait in DIN-A5, not a photo strip like in Westallee.
PS: If you like "Illumat" and want to have it in your event or any celebration? (Wedding, Birthday, Team party, Children workshop etc...), please contact me. I'm happy to collaborate my Illumat with your work. :)
This summer year is a crazy time for me. I tried this project and it made me so much fun!
I started this idea because my working place is exakt on the Westallee street, such a perfect place. :D
My photo machine (Photoautomat) is like a machine that we normally use it in Germany to take a biologisch photo for i.g. Visa requirement, even for an ID card (yeah! they scan a photopaper and place into a card. (lol) )
It's a kind of nostalgic. I want to play with people, because They had to stunt and wait for a few minutes, which for some people was impossible and they didn't realise anyway that they moved after 3 sec. Things that you wouldn't recognised if you don't have to draw them, especially for teens and children I found it's quite impossible. Because they grew up with a handy camera, internet.
Everything drive so fast. And almost in daily life we don't have to wait for some....
I did this for 3 days, each day about 4-6h and the last day was with a Kunst im Hinterhof. What I found interesting is, each day had a definitely different target group. one day for children, another day for family and weekend for a couple.
This time was "Pay what you want" (auf Spendenbasis).
I'm still looking for a nice event, collabs project with my photo machine.
If you're interesting please contact me per Mail firstname.lastname@example.org I'm happy to hear that!
