5. ‘SPACE DISPLAY RESEARCH’

https://krajaleksandra.wordpress.com/2016/05/03/display-ideas/

After exploring a major amount of display ideas for my projection, I have gone with a black room with white painted screen which would reflect my video better than a dark wall.

 

Display ideas

After exploring a major amount of display ideas for my projection, I have gone with a black room with white painted screen which would reflect my video better than a dark wall.

But I have considered these :

VIOLA and his projection of texture which creates even greater depth of perception.

Ideally and very ambitious display idea. Upside down projections. Submerging the space in projection light and creating a whole set of installations.

Or like Craig Thomas IMG_6286

My Space : like a cinema display, dark walls for better contrast between the painted screen.

Anthony McCall, investigating light sculptures.

‘Line Describing a Cone is made from a beam of white light emitted from a film projector positioned at one end of a darkened room. Passing through the projector is an animated film of a thin, arcing line that, frame by frame, gradually joins up to become a complete circle. Over the course of thirty minutes this line of light traces the circumference of the circle as a projection on the far wall while the beam takes the form of a three-dimensional hollow cone. Mist from smoke machines gives the beam of light a greater density, making it appear almost tangible.’

A very immersive piece which initially I wanted to create as an installation. I find the visible light very interesting. Visually creates a boundary but once you’re inside it becomes an enclosure.

5 Key Contextualisation

  1. Craig Thomas – Labrynth 

IMG_6286

We see the  formless and our consciousness (mind) makes it up into forms. –> this really got me thinking when we were in Craig Thomas workshop and seeing his ideas on consciousness and his installation ‘Labyrinth’.Walking through sheets of sheer material with lines going up and down, lifting and compressing the visitors. This piece inspired me to create a projection piece.

 

2. Linear Perspective

‘The School of Athens’ by Raphael (1518), is an example of Renaissance work of linear perspective an the creation of illusion of depth.

3. Gestalt Psychology 

: is a school of thought that believes all objects and scenes can be observed in their simplest forms. Sometimes referred to as the ‘Law of Simplicity,’ the theory proposes that the whole of an object or scene is more important than its individual parts.

This is evident in the works of art that create two different illusions which I have been interested in. Famous illusionary images would include the connections of what we know.

Is it a duck? or a rabbit?

4. Mikolaj Dymowski – RCA

Deception is a project based on a series of experiments related to the perception of confined spaces. The project provides an innovative, seamless solution for people suffering from claustrophobia, in order to improve their experience.

As the populations of cities around the world increases, there is going to be unprecedented pressure on living, working and recreational spaces. However, with more of us living in such proximity in smaller and smaller spaces, this brings with it unanticipated physiological and psychological issues. Claustrophobia is one such growing concern, driven increasingly by the reliance on elevators as cities expand vertically. There is an opportunity to address this for those most vulnerable, while also creating a more delightful traveling experience for all.

5. Diorama Art 

“Glitched” is a series dioramas in smoked glass cubes by artist Mathieu Schmitt

There’s something so compelling and, conversely, off-putting and potentially even anxiety-provoking  dioramas of Montréal-based artist Guillaume Lachapelle.

These eerie dioramas made me really appreciate the small spaces, rather then the big ones that I have been highlighting through my research.

Linear Perspectives

Linear Perspective is a depth cue that is related to both relative size and the next depth cue, texture gradient.  In linear perspective parallel lines that recede into the distance appear to get closer together or converge.

‘The School of Athens’ by Raphael (1518), is an example of Renaissance work of linear perspective and the creation of illusion of depth.

Gestalt Psychology

Is a school of thought that believes all objects and scenes can be observed in their simplest forms. Sometimes referred to as the ‘Law of Simplicity,’ the theory proposes that the whole of an object or scene is more important than its individual parts.

This is evident in the works of art that create two different illusions which I have been interested in. Famous illusionary images would include the connections of what we know, and thus fill out our brain with it’s own ideas, the ideas that we already know.

For example is it a duck or a rabbit?

I find this psychology very intriguing, that when you can create a light illusion for example you can fill out the gaps of what we want the person to see with something that we know. For example, creating a light installation of light depth and out brain adjusts to the idea that there could be a room in the distance.
