Madmapper & blender & Mac

3. Scene Decoration Part:

To achieve the theme of “Recovery”, our term try to decorate the center area with an umbrella and two deck chairs. Visitors can lie on the chair and wear the headphone with the setting music to fell this space.

4. Television Part:

We will put three large televisions on the east side of the sculpture court (see picture below) and play the trailer of our documentary by loop. On the opposite of this wall, there is a Planar Mosaic to show an animation we made.

4. Setting Draft : 

To project four visualizations, we need four walls and a completely dark room.  First of all, we will held our presentation during the night (after 19:00) and close all lights in the sculpture court.  Secondly, we set two projectors as below. And put a blue LED light to decorate this space.

To be more specific, we planned to put two big projectors on the each site of the second floor of the sculpture court for making a big screen like a Lighting show.

What’s more, we will put another in the west area on the ground flood to project the processing part. Visitors can participant in this part with Kinect .

Sound objects will be played by speakers. (We have already booked one, maybe we need more speakers.) And during this p

For projection part, the space between screens and projectors should be blank.
