Where do you put a picture? An image impacts on its surroundings, be it a still or moving picture. Put it into stage, street or site-specific theatre, an exhibition, an event or public space, installed images import a little magic.
Visual installations can take many forms, depending on their purpose, perhaps projected, or on a monitor, maybe built into a set. How will the viewer interact with the installation, do they control it, or just watch it, or does an actor interact with it? From using music to control a changing environment to making your own digital stained-glass window, I can create for you an exciting and breath-taking visual installation.
Christchurch Players, Tadley, 2008. I solved the problem of staging the difficult “Flying to the Neverland” scene by making a video, blue-screening the actors and animating them flying first through London, then out over the countryside and ocean to the Neverland. This University self-assignment was my first After Effects project, and although the stylised appearance is in keeping with the “augmented-reality” Pantomime aesthetic, the results are still breathtaking, and the film blew the audiences away every night. I filmed, directed, and edited the entire video, as well as writing, performing and recording the soundtrack.
Dartington College of Arts, 2009. The user finds them self appearing on the screen, placed into a familiar local scene, and as they play the keyboard they are transported to different locations, controlling their destination by the notes they play.
