Photogram work developed into flatbed research practice
Lessons learned from flatbed + pigment videos
Questioning the status of the image…
Staged materiality – analog not digital
Ambiguity of scale – emphasis on embodied
The camera sensor or screen at its limits
enter from stage left – research paper on intermedia
resulted in an increased interest in embodied viewing, staging of media
The negative is an intermedial element….
Current research practice- starting to put some ideas from the research paper into practice.
Version 3 of project proposal – theme of liminality (boundaries and thresholds)
Projections are images in space. Multiple or composite projections can create complex spaces
Shadows are a way of interacting with projections
The negative can be set against the positive in space – a zone of negation. One form of composite projection
Composite projections – diagrams
Pictures showing setup – version with 35mm slides. Model showing long throw projector
Model – figures in space casting shadows onto swamp
Camera photographing projection from behind
Result 1 – Birch Forest. the positive and negative slides don’t fully cancel. Figures shadows are either postive or negative. When they overlap a full shadow is cast.
Result 2- swamp. the positive and negative slides don’t fully cancel. Figures shadows are either postive or negative. When they overlap a full shadow is cast.
Video tests – using a digital projector instead of a slide projector. A DSLR records the result which gives an impression of what an actual installation would look like.
NB: With only one projector, the final result is achieved by a composite (normal blend) of two video clips taken in sequence. The result should be similar but doesn’t take into account alignment or matching problems…
Thinking about form-content, installation, materials in the space, performance…
