Unit 35 Installation Production Booklet

Past and current video installation practice

From your research into video installation, give two examples that you think influence your work / ideas
in some way.
One should be a past practitioner, the other should be contemporary.
Past Practitioner
Name:

Nam June Paik

iography
with video installation is Nam June Paik, whose work from
the mid-sixties who used multiple television monitors Paik
went on to work with video walls and projectors to create
large immersive environments. His fascination with the
transmission and manipulation of video imagery originated
with the purchase of one of the first Sony Portapaks, the first
portable video and audio recorder.

Notes on their installation

His fascination with the transmission and manipulation of


video imagery originated with the purchase of one of the first
Sony Portapaks, the first portable video and audio recorder.
The camera helped him in creating visual material for his
works. A video synthesizer that uses internal video pattern
generators to electronically create a video signal and
generate a variety of visual material without the input of
cameras.

How is it similar to your ideas?

He uses a television screen like our installation and


speakers.

Unit 35 Installation Production Booklet

Contemporary Practitioner
Name:

Spartacus Chetwynd

Biography

Her mother, Luciana Arrighi was an Oscar winning


production designer. She studied anthropology at University
college London, then studied painting and training in the
Royal college of art. Her real name was Alalia Chetwynd, then
it changed to Marvin Gaye Chetwynd and in 2006 she apopted
the name Spartacus Chutwynd.

Images

Notes on their installation


She has exhibited her work in the Saatchi gallery,
Edenborough art festival, Tate gallery and the New Walk
museum.

How is it similar to your ideas?

She creates sculptures, paintings and her exhibits include


live performers within the art.
Specifically, one of her exhibitions for the Turner Prize in
2012 features projections of videos on the walls behind live
dancers in costumes with props with many people in the
audience watching. She designs her sets are creates
sculptural installations including coloured lights and smoke.
I like the use of colour in this exhibition as well as how lively
it is to watch with the music, exciting and interactive for the
audience.
Her work is similar to our ideas because we are creating
something that is interactive for the audience because they
will feel like celebrities at an awards ceremony and we fill
really focus on the set design.

Unit 35 Installation Production Booklet

Sound design
What sound will your FMP / Productions have?
Audience cheering and clapping.
What sound will your FMP / Productions have?
Audience clapping/cheering. Award night type music and music from the productions.

Will you use headphones or speakers for this sound?


Speakers

Why?
It will help more with the atmosphere of an awards night, and make the audience feel they are there
together as they will be hearing the same thing at the same time. Speakers would draw more attention
to the installation as it is the Final Major Project it is quite important

Lighting design
What lighting will you have in your installation? Consider health and safety.
We will have theatre type lighting. As lights get hot, they will be out of reach so people dont touch them.
Quite bright lighitng, light bulbs around the TV, like a dressing room for actors in Hollywood.

Sketch out your lighting plans for the installation.

Light bulbs

projector

Unit 35 Installation Production Booklet

Projection vs screen
Will you project your video or play it on a screen?
We will project our video onto a plain background with a boarder of an old fashioned TV (unless we can
source a TV, then we will play it on the screen)

Why?

Because if we cant source a TV, a


screen and boarder would be cheap and
effective

If you are projecting what will


you project ONTO? (ie fabric,
screen, materials etc)

A white Screen

If you are using a screen, will you


use a single screen, or multiple
screens?

A single screen because we dont want


to overcrowd it and want to draw
attention to each individuals work

How will that change how your


audience READS your animation?

They will read it like an awards


ceremony because at an awards
night they would only have one
main screen.

Unit 35 Installation Production Booklet

Technological convergence
What is technological convergence?
This is the progression and change of where you can view things on different technology
platforms. New technologies take over old ones, being more advanced.

Will you be using this in your installation?


No

Explain your answer.


We will be using an old fashioned TV in our exhibition. Therefore, we wont be using more advanced
technology.

How have the following influenced your ideas?

work of the artists you have researched

venue and facilites

lighting

sound

screens / projectors

speakers / headphones

Omar Fasts work influenced us to use


the space and ambience to draw the
viewer into the work and create an
atmosphere and theme.
We had to come up with an idea
that was realistic in the amount of
space we had to work with.
We research the lighting used on
award shows and they were quite
bright and striking. We decided to use
strong lighting from the lightbulbs
around the screen because it had to
be bright but realistic within our
budget. We chose to use light bulbs to
represent a Hollywood dressing room
to be bright but also tie in with our
theme.
We wanted to use speakers to that it
was loud like an awards night would
be. We wanted to use sound effects
like crowd clapping and cheering to
recreate the atmosphere of an awards
night.
We chose to show ours on an old
television because it related to our
ideas of the classical Hollywood
productions that would have been
originally shown on these screens.
We wanted to use speakers to that it
was loud like an awards night would
be.
We thought it didnt need headphones
because we are displaying the Final
Major Project so we felt it was quite
important as the final unit of our
course.
