the original velvet backdrop studio in Fort Point, Boston


august 19, 2007


the 300-sq-ft space was so cluttered with video equipment that we could hardly move about

This was one of the earliest uses of the Fort Point (Boston) studio, and perhaps the first use of the integrated equipment harness which introduced a stable framework for aligning the video camera and video projector. The equipment used consisted of two projection setups, one which generated fluid regions of colors that cycled through the spectrum, and the other which generated graphical striations on the model’s skin, in black and white. A slight tilt of the video camera relative to the projector in the latter setup produced an arc of lines that is informed by the contours of the model’s body.
