This week in class we divided into groups to work on ideas for our first assessment. We brought in different textured fabrics, and played with them projected light and using shadow. We also used cellophane to further the effects of the light/shadow dichotomy, and add an other-wordldy element. The shapes formed by the draping textiles created beautiful outlines for a mask, and we were inspired to use this idea of a non-linear, highly visual/sensical format for our video assessment.

Above is the masking we did on photoshop, using the shape formed by the background. The creases and wrinkles in the fabric create abstract forms as the projection moves over the floating object. The same effect can never be achieved twice, as we held the fabric and light and camera by hand, the human element meant that the image was forever changing.
