hello! just want to refresh the blog a bit, always being greeted by same last post.
went to the two exhibitions from China at Te Papa, really lovely and AMAZING illustrations like a cool combi of plan & elevation (top one) and brilliant “iso-perspectives” I dunno it’s just so COOL! Very self-explanatory and clear and yea everybody gets it :) is just awesome jam-packed info and detail!
I found out too late that there’s no photos (SORRY! probably means no posting too O_O? I will gladly take ‘em down please don’t sue me), but everyone should definitely check them out while you can! :D
realised I did have the design solutions thought out, but not labelled in the same clear language as the other Espressoholic slide, so did that. Tweaked the Mac’s umbrella to be more theatrical (like stage curtains), and added the slide which shows the coasters being hidden (only found when tracing the sound’s origins)
video for multimedia (Fri) “2 Mins of 2 Hours Before”
thought of doing it for a week (start shooting from 3 to 5 the day before, and upload that every next day for the opening week), to relay the “constant” element of studio. Like the showing of day in night (day at night?) was the “delay” but the constancy..?
Oli says “are you sure?” so nope, guess not..
Haha after installing with Sylvia and Natalia (long hands) I think really not so yup, shot a bit more over the weekend, will try to produce a nicey video with more clouds.
quite liked this ambiguous flashy spots and lens flare though, kept the clouds out of it (also cos Wellington had no clouds overhead on Thurs)
option of opting in & out, more obvious framing in the other two sites, control punchline till the end, participants should not see coaster before experiencing the installation?
talked to 4th year Steph after too, we both liked that it was subtle, and talked through that it actually shouldn’t end, (just as as long as you dine out you’ll pretty much always be a pawn) and the only means of opting out is to switch seats/go away.
so yup one way to “disclaimer” this would be to make the setup more obvious, Steph mentioned making it more theatrical, (she liked the frame too like Jacquie :)), and to find a way to uncover the coaster only after hearing the sound.
testing some orb things. performer-audience thing again, I thought if we were sharing sites I might go with the projecting down people. So as they are watching the projections on the floor, there’ll be sudden cuts of round lights, throwing them under the spotlight :D
