MODULE 4: INFORMING CONTEXTS. WEEK 3.

Projection Test.
James Bellorini 2020.

Extending the current module theme of constructed work and images, today I’ve been developing an idea that has been germinating for a little while to utilise image projection.

It’s something that I began to explore in Surfaces & Strategies but didn’t develop so much at the time. It seems pertinent in this module to revisit it and begin to place it in the context of my wider thematic project work.

I took delivery of an inexpensive digital projector this week with the idea of creating spaces within another space in order to create the sensation of being between worlds. The images here (utilising images made during this module so far) are very simple tests of the projector and not what I intend for the final work. That will be dictated by using a large non-domestic space (one that I have in mind) and with some collaborators/subjects present as well.

Some inspiration for this comes from the image below by photographer Sarah Moon who utilises a large image printed on to a sheet and suspended in a street with the subject present in front of it.

I am also intrigued by the use of projections on different surfaces such as the newspaper below. I think this could make for some intriguing images if specific curated objects were used.

What’s also interesting about this is that it indicates to me how some work could be displayed in a final installation/exhibition. Food for thought and more to come.
