snippets #2 – Prague Quadrennial of Extended Scenography

Automate self-playing installation by Norway artists…poetic, humorous, strong. (I have to find details in my suitcase!)
It was the first room in the basement, the objects seemed to be recup from a beach and were making sounds when activated. they were moving on rails, there were 2 projectors on frontal, and one retro-projecting + 4 strong side diagonal lights which were performing as much as the objects.
Projection of submarine, water,… can’t say exactly. At time, projections were made to fit exactly the objects, inhabiting them. I dived into another world.

WATERWHEEL – 2nd LAB on the TAP – 27-29 April & 3-6May

If you want to participate, please check & tick the sessions on this doodle – Remember to change the poll to your timezone, then check the times you are available (3 sessions if possible, or more). If there are none, please suggest other times.

This 2nd lab will happen on the TAP with acces only to webcams (no mixing media yet), so we can be only 6 participants per session (for this lab). Very exciting: there are functions that I never saw before: webcams images can be dragged, resized, flipped vertically and horizontally, as well as rotated!
