Creating Imaginary Spaces
Projected images on a surface will become flat, except for images thathave been projected with three-dimensional hologram projectors.However, when a set of two-dimensional images meet perpendicularly, itdevelops a three-dimensional quality. I have explored ways of foldingmoving images just like folding paper to create a three-dimensionalobject. Through a set of experiments, with sound as a catalyst,creating a three-dimensional environment using two-dimensional motionpictures was the goal. The final project creates a fundamentalstructure which uses space as a framework for motion graphics. Ascontent, using only dots, lines and planes to portray the basic formsof graphic design. Two projectors were set in a room - one projectingthe floor and the other projecting the a wall perpendicular to thefloor. The images were set up to share a side. Two projectors were setup to show different movie clips. However, these were connected with ashared narrative. For example, a movie clip was projected on the wallshowing a circle moving down into the screen on the floor, whichconsequently followed by the clip creating a ripple effect to show thatthe circle on the wall recedes onto the screen on the floor. Throughthis set up of the two two-dimensional moving pictures, the viewer isable to visualize a three-dimensional scenery of a sunset at the beach.The shared edge becomes the horizon. Among the moving shapes, peopleare driven to imaginary spaces. This content was kept very abstract andstructural to let audiences open their own imaginations.
