Painting the Town… Update (28/1/18)
It’s a rather short day, however I’ve done all I’ve set out to do. Before I get onto what happened today I want to share the video documentation of the projection tests from last time in the studio. I’ve placed both tests alongside each other to see how they look. The Unforgiven one is short by about 20 seconds. I could match that longer one Yurusarezaru mono to take out portions. However that could effect the impact or effectiveness of the piece. Of course these are only test and I have yet to shortened/remove the gaps, which will effect both pieces. It could be a vicious circle.
Moving onto today’s projection tests with the latest piece – The Great Silence (1968) which I’ve found to be very successful. That’s with the piece in two positions I tried out. I’m now torn as to which way I go, the standard straight on approach on it’s side. Having the projection direction onto the back wall gives it a sense of place, we can see that the action took place in this setting. Yet when its projected onto the floor there’s something else going on. The image is more clear, yet I’ve always like how the furniture breaks up the image, it’s more dramatic. I need to see how the video footage works when I review it later.
Lastly the painting of the replacement tables is almost over, I’m thinking another coat and they can be installed. I’ll run another projection test to see how they footage works against them.
