Thinking of how the video/content appear next to the objects. Could it appear next to them, projected from the ceiling?
Could I project all of the plastic items onto the table from above, and have a few of them placed as objects in amongst the projection?
Version 2 – webcam mounted above the table / surface – this means I don’t have to use a transparent surface / cut holes out of the table
And a very rough idea of what the mixture of projected and real items would look like
I’m going to create a test piece for the interim show at Brixton East.
It’ll involve 1 or more of the plastic pieces, probably on a table. A webcam mounted underneath, Using Processing (with a huge amount of help from Ed Kelley) the webcam will detect if one (or more?) of the objects are moved/picked up. This will then trigger audio, video, still images or text – projected (on the table?) or on a screen. It’s an ambitious sketch to work out in 3 weeks but would like to prove the theory – and then expand the work.
I scanned my ‘Fear & Fantasy’ collage to A0 size, then printed it onto a medium weight, matte paper. I kept the ripped edges of the collage in the piece and think it really works – I want to reference where the source material came from. I really like the way that the cut-out part of the collage looks…cut out..(for want of a better word)
Printing ‘Crime & Punishment’ next Thursday.
I shot a hi-res version of the plastics piece today. This JPG looks dark but when printed (large, 2m long) will be much brighter.
I’m going to print the large version next week. I also shot all of the plastic as individual pictures. I’ll use these in the interactive piece that will accompany the print.
Exploring supercuts and the influence of them on my current projects.
2nd loop edit at a slightly better res
