On Friday April 10 Vodo Jumato - VO-ratima Orawannukul, DO-nald Harrison, JU-stin Dykhouse, MA-rtin Thoburn and TO-m Bray - set up their giant projection monolith and painted the side of the office building at Main & Washington with appropriately foolish visuals.
I was prepared for inclement weather this year. I had tarps and a plan. Once I had a couple of people to help it only took about 5-10 minutes to completely secure it from the wind and rain. And once again we had Donald's guitar amp strapped to the lower plank for ballast.
Here are shots of "before" and "after" wrapping:
In the above photos you can see the planks we used as a work surface and to support projectors.
We had a small projector pointing out the back showing the twitter feed.
In the above photos you can see the 'windows' I made out of 8 mil clear plastic, for the projector up top and for the VJs below.
|The view from the top, showing the VJ work surface, Voratima and Donald.|
|Martin and Donald at work. Martin's laptop was a source for Donald's laptop |
via a Blackmagic Intensity Pro. You can see the window.
|Donald's laptop, my darkroom timer and the Hard Hat Cam. We used the |
timer to turn off a light to remind us it was time to run a sponsor logo.
|The view from outside the window.|
|Me! From outside the "Rear Window" from where we projected the |
Twitter feed on the wall behind us.
|Tiny camera on the left of this photo, batteries and Xmtr on top.|
|Battery packs for the camera secured with the camera headband.|

Here is a link to a QTVR movie of my live video camera hard hat (you may have to download it; it's small).
