A week that promises to be fraught started with me getting to the shop early and installing the new white cloth projection screen for the installation. At firt it didn’t work too well but with the back material hanging behind it, it functions pretty well.
It did highlight the need to address the video, video with high contrast works much better. I then had to rush home.
Monday afternon I workled some more on the painted garden for the VR world. I also started to write up the text snatches to be recorded for the gardens and the installation.
Tuesday I continued to work on the painted garden, worked on the new videos and began to write this weeks blog so it doesn’t seem so thrown together. I got the open event advertised through Axisweb, but although I’d agreed an advert in doncopolitan (a local mag) I don’t think it has happened.
Wednesday was spent finishing off in the studio, sorting the hang and titling the paintings.
Thursday I made the labels and voted!
So Friday morning I rewired the sound system for the installation and set everything up for the open day.
On the day I had two visitors so in the afternoon I worked on putting some mist between the sections to make the transitions less stark.
On the Saturday I had no visitors at all, unless you count the man who was looking for the Junk Food Project who haven’t been at the address for two years or so. I worked on the VR section and got a lot done, finishing the mist, adjusting some scale and normal issues and introducing colour to the painted garden. I also made separate skies for the different sections and did some height adjustments to floors and so on.
