Material for group crit – 9th November

Prologue

Photogram work developed into flatbed research practice

Results

 

*********

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…

 

 

 

Next steps..

Thinking about form-content,  installation,   materials in the space,  performance…
