THFM 2560 / ARTC 4000 / 5820 - Projection Mapping
Project #4: Wanderkammer v.2 (ArtsX Wankelman Gallery Exhibition)
Due: Installed in the Wankelman Gallery before it opens.
Gallery hours are: Friday, December 6th, 11am-4pm, 6-10pm and Saturday, December 7th, 11am-4pmAssigned: Wednesday, October 30
We created projection-mapped objects for the Wanderkammer v.1 that were installed and documented in room 120. Now, for ArtsXtravaganza, we have the entire Wankelman Gallery reserved for our class only, to install a full exhibition of our projected objects. For this project, you will modify and improve your original Wanderkammer objects to make them stronger and gallery ready. You are also responsible for installing the actual object in the Wankelman Gallery and contributing to the class’ overall exhibition installation (darkening windows, moving pedestals, gaffing wires, etc.)
For this project, you will:
- Create a modified response plan for v.2
- Re-edit and map your content
- Install the object in the Wankelman Gallery for Arts X (see calendar below)
- Document the projection and prepare a short video.
- You must be available Thursday 12/5 and Friday 12/6. Per the syllabus: For Arts Xtravaganza, you will install or re-install your class projects. This will be the culmination of the course. You will need to be available all day Friday 12/6 as well as Thursday 12/5 afternoon and evening, so be sure to request off from work now if there is a possible conflict. You must make yourself available for installation, ArtsXtravaganza, and tear-down after the event. You will have two different installations at ArtsX, the Wanderkammer Redux and the Giant Wolfe Map, so plan to invest significant time that week.
V.2 Response Plan: (Due Monday, November 4)
Now that you have received class comments and feedback and a grade on your Wanderkammer Object v.1, carefully consider the critique and develop a response plan for how you plan to improve / modify the piece and make it gallery ready. Please do the following written assignment:
1) Response Plan: Write a professional, well-written Project Proposal. It must be in paragraph form, spell checked, grammar checked, and typed. This must include separate PARAGRAPHS for:
- are you doing a modification of the piece we saw or a completely new piece? Why? (defend it!)
- what were the biggest concerns / problems from v.1 listed by the critique?
- what is the overall concept / theme for the piece - restated / improved from original?
- what modifications will you make to the actual footage and editing style?
- how does the projection better relate to the object?
- Will you add sound/ if so what type of sound will you use? (dialogue, effects, music?) Will viewers use speakers or headphones?
2) Create an updated diagram of the installation. It must be professionally made - as if you are submitting it for a gallery competition. You may create in Photoshop. Include all technology (source, projector, cables, object).
UPDATED VIDEO DUE: (Due Wednesday, November 13)
Last critique before install of the final projects. Grade given. (we will critique the footage only).
GALLERY INSTALLATION DUE: (Due Monday, December 2)
Bring in everything needed to install your piece (object, equipment, footage)
ARTSX INSTALLATION: (Monday, December 2 - Thursday, December 5)
You must be available outside of class time to install your project in the Wankelman Gallery. You will need to document your object, perhaps interviewing spectators, or showing the process, etc. (We have access from Thursday, November 28 through Thursday, December 5, if anyone wants to get in over the holiday.)
EXHIBITION HOURS: (Friday, December 6, 11am-4-m, 6-10pm & Saturday, December 7, 11am-4pm)
You may document your artwork at anytime during the open gallery hours.
DOCUMENT YOUR ARTWORK: (Due Wednesday, December 18)
One of the problematic things with any installation work is that you have to experience it… or document it well enough for others to understand the piece. Video is ideal since the work is time-based. Shoot documentation video of your artwork and edit it in a way that best describes the experience with the piece. Watch your aperture, color balance. Use a tripod. Vary your shots (LS, MS, CU). Include the original source footage if desired. Video should be short, may include text to contextualize the experience. Edit the documentation video, and upload it to your vimeo page, sharing with our group. Also copy the uncompressed HD version to our HW folder.
