Installation at the TCAUP Gallery

Over the weekend and on Monday January 28, 2013, I helped faculty members Etienne Turpin and Meredith Miller set up some projectors for their show, "Futures of Hypercomplexity".  They are, respectively, a Lecturer and an Assistant Professor at the Taubman College of Architecture & Urban Planning.

I had an initial meeting with Meredith where we planned out how they wanted to do the projections, but between then and last weekend they made some dramatic changes which I only discovered on arrival.  The short story is that they could not do it the way they had changed things so we had to re-build some simple supports for things in the ceiling before we could actually hang the projectors.

It all worked out, and here are a few photos.

The tables seen are very nicely illuminated from the inside, with inscribed info on the plexi tops.

A general view of the setup, with one pair of the wall projections.

In this image, the projected images are washed out because I exposed for the details in the dark.  All the hardware is hidden on top of the plywood in the ceiling, and you can see where we had to extend the original platform.  They provided laptops and I provided the projectors, mounts and 2 MATROX Triple Header To Go boxes that made the 2 projectors appear as one desktop to the laptop driving the slide show.  This allowed them to have the double wide images in a synchronized slide show.
