‘Unleashing the Artist in all of usʼ


delighted to present:

The Weird and Wonderful Art Phenomena of the:

The Museum of Optography
and the Afterimage
Presented as an illuminated video talk and accompanying colour afterimage workshop by the artist:

Derek Ogbourne
The Museum of Optgraphy is a touring exhibition created by Derek Ogbourne consisting of drawings, paintings, photography, objects, sound, video art, documentary and film, it is a very good introduction to how a multidisciplinary artist works and to artists like Paul Klee, Joannes Itten of the Bauhaus School of Art. Suitable for all ages.
“We enter the mind of an artist whose fascination with the obscure and forgotten dark art of optography has reawakened an unforeseen new vein of enquiry. An image temporarily bleached in flesh by the light that illuminates things on to our retina, an afterimage. This image, at the moment of death, now hidden in the eyes of death can be held in the living hands, observed temporarily by living eyes, detached from its brain and life that once decoded lifeʼs light.”

From Derek Ogbourneʼs show at the British Optical Assosiation Museum show, 2009
