and Photo-Shopping on Saturday afternoon.
On Saturday afternoon eight young people went, armed with a digital camera, to hunt for butterflies in the windows of Bold Street shops. Later they attempted to photograph items inside the shops of a specific colour, in an activity called ‘Photo-Shopping.
This was all part of FACT’s Gallery Workshop which was led by artist John O’Shea. The young people were introduced to the mechanics of digital photography and were also shown a traditional slideshow.
It was suggested that the young people should use the cameras as a device for ‘capturing’ - in the same way as an explorer might use a butterfly net.
When they had finished exploring and capturing the young people returned and uploaded the images to Flickr and were able to do their own digital slideshow of what they had collected. Click here to view the work.
