Thursday May 31 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
and on Friday, June 1 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and from 11:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
This action was born with the idea of â€‹â€‹using a space in the city and transform it into a dark camera, an optical instrument that allows to obtain a flat projection of an external image on the inner area of â€‹â€‹its surface.
This will allow different unknown people to find themselves in a dark and silent place to look at a natural phenomenon.
The artist tries to demonstrate the discovery of the photographic principle, used to this day in digital cameras, showing how we record all the visual elements of the world we share, suggesting that everything is outside and also within ourselves.
Born in August 1984 in Zagreb (Croatia), Ratko Bokan graduated and took a master's degree in Business Administration and Tourism from the University of Zagreb.
He has explored the world of photography for more than 15 years, focusing on the processes of analog photography that eventually lead him to manufacture his own cameras to reuse boxes and discarded cans.
In doing so, he questions the simplification and commercialization of photography and attempts to experiment by combining the oldest photographic techniques with modern technology, thus adding his experience in the darkroom, film development techniques and new approaches to image processing.
In recent years, he has held many photographic workshops related to this approach, most of them outside Croatia, framed in European projects: The Black Box, Mladi or Starome "Do Velho Novo", among others.
