Final major project completed for exhibition.

I had to hang up the rest of the fabric I purchased from York Market with the paper clip. and blackout the windows again using gaffer tape before I could setup my sculpture.

First of all we tried to see what the sculptures would look like in the main exhibition space and used some spotlights on it although it looked good I felt that the blacked out room would look better.

I also experimented further using my original sculpture’s in the space on a plinth. They looked good but I still wanted to try my larger sculptures.

I then moved the sculptures into the blacked out room I placed them on a black piece of material I had left over and then I felt they needed some height so I used the plinth and placed it on its side with the fabric.

I then had to find a way to secure the piece because although it stood up it couldn’t be left as it had fallen and it wouldn’t be a good idea to leave it to fall mid exhibition.

I approached Ollie who gave me a stapler but because of the weight and thickness of some of the wire the staples wouldn’t work. It was suggested that screws would work but I really didn’t want to use screws that could be seen and I felt they would be seen, so Ollie found some black screws that against the black fabric covered plinth couldn’t be seen so I was really happy with that. To further stabilise the sculpture I used fishing wire and paperclips securing from the top of the sculpture’s to the ceiling.  I am really happy with it so far but just have to wait in hope that everything is ok with the audio and visual projection.

I visited my exhibition piece on the day of the exhibition and the Audio had been set up and I was really happy with it but I felt their was still something lacking. I was mostly disappointed with the way the projector would not reach all of the sculpture and there was no way of enlarging it or moving it further back.

I went to see Brian I thought perhaps I could use a  second projector and project the same image underneath. ”Twin projections onto Twin sculptures’. Brian wasn’t sure this could be done and said he would bring another projector over to see if we can get a larger image onto the sculpture. I was disappointed but was pleased that there maybe another solution.  Brian came over and had decided to try to link the two projectors together as he realised that there is an output socket on the projector but couldn’t guarantee it would work as he had never done it before.  Lucky for me it did work and I was over the moon with the result.

I am so happy with what I have achieved for my FMP I don’t think I could have done anymore.

Plinths

I have been researching presentation methods used by projection artists but haven’t really thought about the presentation of the wire sculpture and weather I will need to purchase a low stage like plinth. I have had a look at some of the websites that make them to have an idea of how much one may cost or to look at alternative ideas on Pinterest. I also need to find a way to display the photo book for people to look at.

Preparing my exhibition space

Because I am hoping to project onto my wire sculptures as I did in my experimentation and need a dark space,  it was suggested that I have my own space in a room off the corridor for the greatest effect. I was given the Plaster room. Unfortunately this meant I have had to wait to be able to use the space as it was still being used by students all over college and the Saturday club. On the 25/5/17 I was finally allowed to transform the space into my exhibition space and this was going to be a difficult task. The room is full of equipment, dust, plaster and tables, with some help we stacked the tables and moved the furniture and plaster equipment to the sides and back of the room.  I then got on my hands and knees and broke the dried plaster with a hammer and scrubbed the dried plaster from the floor ready for the cleaners to use their polisher on the floor over the weekend.

because I want my room to be as dark as possible I blacked out the windows with cardboard and masking tape and was given some black Fabric to hang somehow and hide the stuff behind. I measured from floor to ceiling how long I would need the material.

Removing the ceiling tiles I had to find a way to hang the pieces of fabric. I thought I would try using paper clips as the fabric was easy to pierce.

When the fabric was put up next to each other it would separate so I used masking tape to hold it together. I don’t think this will be strong enough to hold it as the heat from the projector may cause it to unstick so I will need to purchase some Gaffer tape as this will be much stronger.

I need to purchase some more material. It was unfortunate that the Fabric only cut four lengths when I need six. The paper clips seemed to work so I am happy with that.

Audio and Video

I met with Brian the college technician at the editing suite at 10am so that we could go through the audio that I wanted to use for my FMP. The Video’s are stored on my You Tube channel. I had to sign in to you tube and then Brian used the You tube Link on a You tube Audio editor to down load them in to the Adobe Premiere Pro on the Mac computer in the suite. I explained how I wanted to capture Paige and Taylors point of view on what it is like to be Identical Twins but with my voice in it as little as possible so that it sounds like they are just talking about it rather than answering questions although this wasn’t always avoidable.

I have never seen or been involved in editing Audio or video before and it is something I wouldn’t mind knowing more about when I move on to my Degree although I am not technically minded and I do know from my research that lots of artists that use Media in their art work don’t necessarily do all the editing etc.. themselves and most will employ Technicians like Brian to do the work for them.  I directed Brian with every bit of the editing process and we cut the amount of Audio from Twenty nine minutes to 17 minutes. I wanted to use photographs that I had manipulated previously and had used before but also felt it was important to use the photographs of the girls when they were younger and from their photoshoots in the kitchen especially the Time lapsed Handstand that I based my wire sculpture on. I won’t know what the effect of using these photographs will be like in the exhibition space until it is all set up although I am prepared to make changes should I need to. I also want to explore further to see what it would look like using different lightbulbs in a spotlight including a red light and a black light.
