So, last night I was shooting the “Projected Pixels” project over at the wonderful Studio 2 Gallery on South Lamar, as part of the “Matinee Mania” opening. I have to say, it was probably the best fun I’ve had at an opening in a long time. The show was fantastic-it was great to see the diversity of work devoted to the movies-and the opening was such a blast. The piece you see here was painted by the Cupcake Lady (and, yes, that’s me standing in front of it.)
The gallery was setup so that there was a small “theater” in the back, with the projector blasting images to a wall, and there was even a “red velvet rope” that I could pull back to allow people to step inside. Once in the project, the projected images were displayed and I was able to re-photograph the images with people standing in front, making gestures and posing. I have to admit, the people were great-there was such a surprising range of emotions and creativity. The project was very interactive-we even had chairs lined up (like a real theater) so that other people could sit and watch. That was a lot of fun too, actually, getting to sit down and see what everybody would do. It really was a fun project and I hope to do it again sometime soon.
In other news, the weather has finally broken a bit-it’s been slightly cooler, at least enough to make me feel a bit better. Maybe I just had so much fun over at Studio 2 I don’t notice the heat anymore, but it really does feel a bit cooler.
I’m still printing for my next two shows, some stuff is due this week and some (I think) next. I haven’t had time to do much painting or do the transfers that I had wanted to do just yet but look for more details about some additional upcoming projects really soon.
If you can avoid the alien life forms, that is.
Until next time…
