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 day I have thought about the first static image. It was quite difficult to decided it because it need to attract audience get closer and sit down to watch. Then I came with an idea how about use cell as element. Because enlarge the perception is our neuron and cell to create our perception. So I found different cell and neuron image online. I found the color also quite dramatic.

And tried to use them to edit an image. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0SsNBQAXsk
I spent lots of time to edit them and thought it will work. But unfortunately I found it didn’t work. Actually look bad and wasted time.
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.
After the tutorial,Jonathan and me tested the distance of projector,found that it need a huge space to present my idea. And other problem is the exhibition space probably too bright that audience can’t see the image clearly. So it is impossible to do it. I was so frustrated and regret. I should test early not just think in my mind. There are too much different condition in physical work. This gave me a lesson. But I know there is no time to self-accusation,I need to think a solution immediately.
Then I came with another idea. Use moniter to present the video,and use mirror or mirror paper to cover about it. It may create a effect similar with kaleidoscope. This can solve the light problem,also create a trippy effect. I can make two of them,one for figurative video and one for abstract video.
However Jonathan said it take some time to test mirror effect. I have test fabric before,so it is better to keep focusing on fabric. He help me figure out another idea which is base on one of my video. He suggest me to reduce the space to 3 layer fabric frame and place them on the ground. Project a static image on these layer,audience move around may found that the image look like moving but actually it is static,kinds of illusion. Then the video will play when audience sit down. This idea not only continue my idea but also can save more space to display.
This idea also remind me the Chinese screen. So I have tried to make different position to figure out which method have a better result. However,I found that place these layer parallel is the best. Other method will have shadow on the screen,also can’t have a intensive spatiality. So I decided to use this position in the end.
Then I think about how to place them and the size of them. About the size,if their size become bigger it probably will produce some shadow on previous screen. And audience can see the farthest frame though the fabric. I think make them in same size is better to avoid the shadow and frame problem. I also think about how to join three of them and how to make pedestal. Use metal plate to joint them or make joint to fix them.
