Invisible Ink in collaboration with postgraduate students at Birkbeck University have created an interactive, virtual, life drawing event themed on Film Noir and Neo Noir. Prompted by the pandemic crisis they explored the potential of combining movement, cinematic themes, and technology. Their research tests the making of a high quality online interactive drawing experience for audiences. The students created their video content remotely using mobile phones. 

During this event you will be able to

  • draw from the students’ videos
  • Share your artwork in an online gallery
  • Take part in a panel discussion about the process
