Harry Potter

to Sacha van den Haak & Felix van Dam’s window

I know the light sensitive emulsion has to be hardened with UV light, but I just wanted to see what would happen if you would put the screen on top of a television screen and use it to lighten the silk screen. That way you could make one image out of the light, produced by for instance Harry Potter. Or a triptych from the Lord of the Rings movies. I would like to see that! As Felix thought ‘oh what the hell.. if the guy would shut up about it, we’ll throw a TV under a window’.


Accio screen

As a test we drew a black circle and a black square on a white background in order to have the most contrast possible. We put the TV on Felix’s bed along with the silk screen and put covers on top. Waiting for half an hour and then took the window and washed the unlighted emulsion away. To our surprise there where some signs that the emulsion had reacted to the television light. But the light of the TV screen proved to be too weak (and too little of UV) to make a lasting impression.
