Berit Greinke’s LPT workshop fun-day

On Saturday 16 October, Artist in Residence Berit Greinke gave the LPT staff and a few others a rare treat; a day of messy printing and sound programming. It was a great chance for us all to learn more about Berit’s work, specifically her most recent project Chrome (Live) a series of colour and print experimentation involving water, a colour sensor and sound programming.

Workshop participants used felt pens, dyes and fabric binder prints onto fabrics and  blotting paper usually associated with scientific testing to produce a range of images, patterns and marks.

Once created and dried the print workshop became a hodge-podge of water trays for the papers to be dipped and slowly absorb the water. The effect was varied (very much a day of experimentation!) where colours ran, grew up the page and in some cases, seperated into their colour components.

One of the papers was inserted into Berit’s box containing a water tray and camera (which you can see in the Lambeth Open blog post here) converting the soaked and spreading colours into sound.

Berit finished her year-long Surface Bursary residency at the beginning of November. It has been a real joy working with Berit through the year and seeing her sound and textile projects develop.

We wish her all the best in her Phd and we hope to see her working again within the workshop soon.
