Join us this October for an interactive residency taking place over 5 days focusing on infrared experimentation through the lens of arts and neuroscience.

Project creator, Cristian Zaelzer, and collaborator Emery Vanderburgh, will test and mix materials with different IR modulators to create effects and discover new properties for each mixture that can be applied to experimentation and aesthetic delivery. Cristian will use these formulas to study infrared contrast, light tightness, balance, temperature, and emotion of a scene. 

See below for the full schedule:
