    In this demo, learn about how to create these colorful prints at home using everyday materials; how to expose, wash and fix lumens without a darkroom. Pollman will also show examples of lumens made with different processes, and discuss the finer points of exposure and manipulation.

Multi-disciplinary and research-based, her practice investigates the slippery and complex nature of memory, remembering, and the psychology of forgetting in relation to the photographic index. Pollman holds a BFA and MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and Tufts University. She has previously taught courses at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Tufts University; New England College and Montserrat College of Art.
