Finally I finished my frame. I learned majority psychical skill though the process. I haven’t make a frame before,so this means a lots to me. Every step of the process is difficult to make it perfect,like drill hole,cover fabric perfectly,joint them together.
Even the back side,I tried to make it look better,use tape to hide the staple. Because I learned that this is part of my work,I need to try my best,take it seriously.
And finally I finished the set up. I know it is not the most perfect one,but for me,I have try my best. So I’m quite satisfy about it.
I used fabric to cover the frame. It spent lots of time make it myself. Because I need to pull the fabric hardly when I use staple gun.
At the same time I went to set up our exhibition space.
Today I was drilled hole on the frame,for using wood nail. It was quite difficult to drilled accurately especially I don’t have dinner for whole day.. So some hole were not accurate.
These two day I went to different fabric market to found appropriate fabric for projection. It is extremely tricky to find a fabric not only have a exact density but also have a appropriate hardness. Those fabric have a low density like net. The benefit of net is it can project more than three layers. But it the image can’t stay clear on the net except simple lines. The Chiffon which I have test before is ok,but not the perfect one because the third layer image is not very clear. So I need to find a fabric is more transparent.
At first I thought there are only one kind of Chiffon. But I found that actually there all majority of Chiffon,different density and texture. Then I bought different kinds of Chiffon in different fabric shop.
1.This one is very nice,but it is too soft. The image on the second layer is not very clear.
2.This Chiffon is soft too,and imaging is not perfect.
3.This one is quite nice for project image on 3 layers,but it is too gloss and it will have reflect light on it.
4.This one is not clear when image project on second layer.
5.This one is the most prefect one that not only have appropriate density but also can see the image very clear on each layer. So I will choose this kind of Chiffon to make the screen.
