Ideas for screens

This weekend’s meeting took place in Castleberry Hill to scout locations and get a better idea of how our piece might be implemented. After presenting our ideas since our last meeting, we generated an amalgam idea. It can be viewed in sketch form in the meeting notes post. The basic idea is having the projectors projecting into space rather than onto a surface. The result is that the ride will then appear on people; the audience becomes the screen (or, at least, certain members do). From our brainstorming we realized that we needed to stress how participation completes the pieces in a very core way, rather than in other more surface manners (such as voting on it or people being there to view a spectacle). We wanted to cultivate the spectacle of watching with the spectacle of watching others.

For my secondary sketches, I focused on the nature of the person-screen.
