Augmented Sculpture

Overview

“Working independently, create a meaningful projection-mapped sculpture in the Studio. Build a physical sculpture element using prepared boxes, simple furniture, found objects. This may be assembled as a floor-based piece, hanging piece, or wall piece. The idea is to use these objects as bare projection surfaces so either white or light-coloured objects should be used. The projections could both add to the surface of the objects and highlight around objects.

It is envisaged that students explore sculptural form and the way light affects the form, documenting this exploration using stills and video. Many ‘studies’ are likely to be produced which should also be documented appropriately (these may also be screen recordings).

Areas of investigation for your consideration include:
• the physical abstract sculpture
• the relationship between the physical and the digital
• play with lights, shadows, materials and other motion graphics techniques
• work with a range of materials, concepts and digital tools to deliver ideas”

Ideas for objects to map on:

  • Gloves
  • A Glass Jar

I’m interested into looking at hands and intentions behind actions. I’m not sure if I want to present this by a glove sculpture or projecting on a big fortune teller.

I started by making a mask using the blown up glove.

I liked this projection a lot. I used an image I created through a processing sketch. Next time I’m hoping to run the sketch and let it play on the hand rather than using a still image.

Idea for mapping surface? Use bigger paper (this was A5).

It’s too light and sunny to use a projector at the moment so I’m trying to pick images and videos I might want to experiment with when I can.

Reflections:

This project represented age, hand gestures and the impact of people’s actions. I intended this project to provoke the audience and hoped they would consider deeper meanings like how women are desirable however much like toys and usable which I represented with the smooth glove, on the other hand if the glove was more deflated this represents how the older women are the less desirable in the eye of society and media. I would like to see this project on a larger scale as suggested by my peers, maybe even life sized sculptures in a gallery space. The size in the final projection was overwhelming to me as I worked on the project on my laptop and the final was projected onto a wall and it was very interesting to see the project on a larger scale. Overall this was the first documentation video I have ever done and I know I still have a lot of improvement to make in that area however I still enjoyed myself and look forward to expanding my video editing skills.
