1.27.14: Sound We See at NID

For the next two weeks we’re teaching The Sound We See:  A 16mm Pinhole Camera Workshop as part of the Open Electives program at the National Institute of Design in Ahmedabad. Established in 1961 with input from Pupul Jayaker and Charles and Ray Eames, the NID has been extremely influential in the development of Indian artists, filmmakers and designers over the decades. Although we’re staying at the original campus in a very Eames-ish guest house, we’re teaching at the new post graduate campus in the neighboring town of Gandhinagar, a concrete wonderland of light and shadow and fabulous darkrooms!  Thanks to Naomi and Isabel for sparking the connection, thanks to Robert Schaller for creating and sharing his magnificent 16mm pinhole camera technology, thanks to Dagie Brundert for the caffenol inspiration, and thanks to Nanu, Mustaqeem, Jason, Kunal, Vikas, Mélody, Shiho, Ashima, Kunal, Rishika, Shivatmika, Madhuri and Chandu for embarking on this exciting journey with us… Power to the pinhole!

  1. Best of luck with The Sound We See guys! Thinking of you both everyday here in LA. Again with the incredible images from a beautiful and mysterious place. What a great journey you’ve had already! Loving the pictures so much. You two are so special, I hope that everything is going well, and that these students appreciate what you both are offering to the world! Wish I was there. Love from U.S.A. XOXO-cosmo

    1. Thanks, Cosmo! I love the way you love to get inside photographs and walk around in them… I find myself thinking, will this pass the Cosmo test??? when I’m compiling stuff to share here… The spirit of EPFC and all its dedicated teachers and talented filmmakers is alive and well at the National Institute of Design this week!
