Transparency Anyone?

So, in looking around my studio and thinking about what I’m really working with right now, I kind of realized that I am drawn to stuff that is either transparent or translucent. Sometimes the glow that a projection gives an image can make an ordinary shot something special. Just last night I was at an event (mosaic) where they had decent projectors on good projection screens and I think I decided that this semester, that is what I’m working on. For a while now I’ve toyed with ideas of projection objects or screen objects, and now I’m at a place to really explore that. I’m not thinking anything like Tony Oursler, but more internal projections, like Ted Victoria, where you aren’t even aware of a projector all the time.

So, I’ve been playing with light, reflections, how it reacts to different materials, and what gives it that elusive quality I want. Maybe this is all just subliminal from having fantastic sky lighting in my studio.

  1. Ha, we seem to be on similar wave lengths, Ben. As i was drifting into a fuzzy, dream-like state the other night, I had idea to create a peep show box…projecting something inside with peep holes looking in. not sure if i'll go ahead with it but if i do i might need your help. :]
