Luminous Mark Elective - Week One
These pieces are showing the projector at one end of the group of objects, projecting their shadows onto the opposite wall. as you can see, the shadows have different opaqueness’s depending on how translucent the objects they are going through are, creating a range of shades. We also stretched a piece of cling film over the front with people sitting either side shaking it to create a wave effect.
We played around with these objects for a while, moving them further away and closer to the light to to see how it effected the picture that was being created on the wall. Obviously, the largest things are the closet to the light source and visa versa.
Due to the glossy floor an extra element is also created of the reflection of the shadows in the floor. Someone had cling film with them as their transparent object, as you can see in there’s photos, we tried stretching it over the frame of light about a meter away from the wall, creating an extra texture.
A lot of this stuff is common sense, the further away from the light something is the smaller it is, the more opaque an object is the darker its shadow will be; however it was very interesting and frankly a lot of fun to see it first hand and have a lot of control over it with an artistic state of mind.
35mm slide projector as our light source,
