Made these images with my projector. Not sure exactly what i think about these, or probably more specifically ‘how’ in relation to other images. I’ll try print out a few later on and see if it can capture a similar feel- perhaps not as the backlighting of the computer screen delivers a punchy visual sheen. I enjoy them and feel like there’s a lot of room to go with them. Yet not through paint, paint simply can’t respond sufficiently.
The immaterial hot glow of the projected image can’t be glossy paint, or levels of transparency, as both of these options rely on an illusionistic form of the image. But the projected image can overlap on a smooth wall, or a rough surface. The projected image comes from a projector which hums, and slowly overheats. Simply put, the projected image suggests the physical which illusion, being conceptual, ignores. I have some ideas to do with plastic, photographs and a lot of layers. I want to make something thick which is still relying on certain 2d image conventions. It’ll be suggesting a 3d element due to the thickness, and the plastic will have that kind of blankly seductive feel to it.
But these ideas are to come. I suppose I”m thinking of it as a kind of sketch at the moment.
