Printing and Projecting

July 19, 2015

 

Sunday 19th July

 

Yesterday I worked on the 3 images, blacking them out and leaving small areas of light.  These are for digital projection in Slideshow form – through a Proxima projector.

 

 

 

Today I am concentrating on the Printmaking process which I intend to use to create a backdrop or screen for the projected images.

 

I calculated, mathematically, what size these images needed to be to form a screen of desired proportions.

 

Having flipped each of the digital images in  © Photoshop, they were then cropped into smaller parts. These smaller images were printed onto acetate which was then used in my desk-top press to transfer the image onto different, transparent papers.

 

Why am I printing onto transparent papers?

 

Images held in the mind fade over time.  Our recollections of a once very real experience become nostalgic, flimsy reminiscences.  The acetate printing process I use produces vague, somewhat smudgy images – like our memories, lacking clarity.

 

Experiences might become confused in memory and several experiences might be remembered as the same event – especially if there is a common theme.  I have chosen 3 photographs connected with boats and water.  All quite different, but the sharing of a narrative could combine them into one.

 

 

 

 

At this stage I am investigating ways of showing the images I have selected.

 

 

 

 

Some of the acetate prints attached to a projection screen.  The images will be free to move in any breeze which the projector might create.  There will be many more of them – creating a large screen.

 

The mix of processes in my practice are as follows …

 

  • Found analogue photographic 35mm slides,

  • Scanned to produce positive digital images

  • Printed, digitally onto acetate

  • Acetates used in printmaking to create new images

  • 35mm slides projected onto the printed images
