QSG is a photography based activity space located in the Rotterdam Port initiated and by Zhou Junsheng. Under the project Vegetating Image, an image of life and vitality, an image that grows as plants do, an image which is embedded by the activities around itself. The image will develop as a photographic activity space, containing a photo studio and a photo club. As a space for daily practical use, the historical and philosophical conversation of photography will merge with the public and local artistic community.

As part of the project Vegetating Image, QSG begins at the place where the image Shengyi Tu* is currently growing. A digital Vegetating Image is displayed as the background of studio-qiseguang.com since 28th August 2018. The ‘exposure-time’ of this image keeps growing everyday with time, through the activities and actions of work within the space, the longer we stay, the more our motions blur.

QSG is also working on the concept and technique of ‘contact’ derived from the contact sheet. At QSG the contact sheet has been developed as a means for digitizing film based photo archives; to come into contact with the digital image. From these contact prints new techniques and understandings in making blueprints for artistic practice are also being developed; This moving from image to contact sheet to blueprint is also bring turned into discussion program, called Kontact.
