Connections

hamilton-inst-001

I’ve been making progress researching possibilities for fabrics to project images on.  I talked to the museum preparator at the Davis Museum and he referred me to someone who professionally installs artwork, who then asked someone who works in the event production industry.  I feel lucky that I was able to find this information through a series of connections.

The final recommendation I got for a scrim was Sharkstooth scrim. Someone else also commented in a recent blog post to think about silk, so I researched some more and stumbled upon this piece above by artist Ann Hamilton. I then found this silk fabric that is used for projection as well.

I’m also thinking about what to do with the projection, I made this video a ways back experimenting with fades, but what I don’t like about it is it makes the video seem more like a slideshow, which I really want to avoid.  I’m going to play around and see if I can come up with something that will be more compelling.

  1. for me your posts are most interesting when addressing the nuts and bolts.it truly does take a host of people for each project , from those we know ( a new side to family members and friends) and those we meet along the way while solving a problem. connections is apt.
