The French media artist Clément Briend teaches how to construct a photo projector with your own hands and how to use it to change urban spaces.

Participants in Clément Briend’s workshop will familiarise themselves with projection: they will get to grips with how projection works from a technical point of view and discover how it can be used in the space of the city.  Each student will put together a mini projector and will use it to create her/his own artwork. Those art works will be presented at an exhibition in the courtyard of the Strelka Institute on the 22nd May.

Clément Briend is a French photographer and media artist.  He teaches theoretical and applied photography at the Université de Valenciennes. He uses his own homemade inventions to show the imaginary side of space and to highlight social and political challenges. To experiment with the possibilities of projection, Briend founded le Collectif des Illuminations Politiques in 2011.
