I had to produce these bits of film to show what I had imagined in my head what my animation film would have looked like had it been projected outside using a proper outdoor projector.
I am aware that projectors don't work as well during the day but there are some that are able to produce a clear image in the middle of the day.
I wanted to have fun and compare myself to a previous student at Falmouth who studied outdoor projection for his PhD, Ian Biscoe. He was part of a team who in the summer of 2014 managed to organise a huge fun fair event right in the middle of the Falmouth town. His job was to organise the projection and he put on a dazzling display of projections that involved 3 of the main buildings on the moore, including the Methodist church and the council building that I did in the photos above.
His works were dazzling with bright colours, intense and fluid motion graphics. They can be found on the event website:
My images however would not have been quite as dazzling and eye-catching as Ian's works. I do believe my film, however, would've stirred up more curiosity than his. But that's just a hunch. I speculate that my work would've disturbed the peace of the public space much like Krzysztof Wodiczko's projections, and be as funnily profound. Something beyond what Jenny Holzer did.
Here are the rest of my experiments:
