Open to All at No Cost

Presenting "High-Tech Low-Tech," an exhibition of images produced with Western Washington University’s Scanning Electron Microscope and Holga toy cameras.

Garth Amundson’s Art 371 B&W Photography II class at WWU’s Department of Art created diptychs comparing the two extremes of image making. Students incorporated various concepts combining the exploration of the microscopic world with a SEM (which magnifies up to 5000x) alongside medium format, low quality Holga cameras with Lo-fi aesthetic.

The scale of the project ranges from a tenth of a hair to a massive landscape. In the spirit of breaking down barriers between departments, the project required students to utilize the Scientific Technical Services located in the Environmental Studies building.

The prints will be on display from November 7 – 21 in the main hallway of the Fine Arts Gallery Entrance Space on Western’s Campus. Special thanks to Charles Wandler, Nathan Cranston, Robin Sizemore, and Cathleen Abramowicz for all their help and support.
