Luminous Forest installation process


Screen Shot 2014-06-27 at 1.47.31 PM

This installation blends analog (an overhead projector and shadows created on it) and digital (the capture of the image from the projector and projecting it in the opposing wall).

The result is an immersive installation where you can play with the light and shadows on the space surrounded by this luminous forest, while someone else plays with your shadow, but from the overhead projector, enhancing the shadows there and making them big enough to chase you (for instance) on the “luminous forest” space.

We played around with mirrors and their reflection (even with a mirror ball!) but decided to keep it more simple and use just the reflection from the overhead projector instead.

Here are some process images of the making of Luminous Forest.

And here are some test images…

…and the final result.

*I’d love to explore this idea further, and have a camera track in real time the overhead projector shapes and project that onto the adjacent 2 walls in real-time.

In collaboration with Annelise Bothner-By.

Here are more images of the installation in its final form.

Below is a video of me setting up the forest cut-outs on the overhead projector.
