MR project, Group 1: Häcka

  • Iwein Reimerink (DVTG 3)
  • Joyce Lieshout (TVG 2)
  • Kimberly van Eijk (TVG 2)
  • Merel van der Lande (TVG 2)
  • Nadja Turlings (TVG 2)
  • Wilbert Schuurman Hess (DVTG 3)

Häcka is an experiment with video projection on translucent screens. The performance is designed to be a loop that could potentially run forever.

A queen is floating in abstract space absorbing energy of dead moths lying on the floor. When critically energized she gives birth to a new generation of moths. They fly around the space and eventually die and drop to the floor. Their life energy is floating upward and is being absorbed by the queen closing the perfect cycle of life and death.

When the the flock of new moths die and fall to the floor a large quantity of paper moths fall from the theatre ceiling in front of the audience in an attempt to give the moths a physical presence.

Because of the light situation the video camera’s have captured only a fraction of the actual piece. In the very first 2 minutes of the full video presentation of the Performance Lecture Mixed Reality an impression of the  actual performance can be seen. Or have a look at the photos below for better quality images.

The second student project group has been researching the potential of live drawing with light on 3D objects. Although they had many ideas the end result focuses on the simple aesthetics of live drawing itself. The white character head has been designed with a 3D computer program, printed out on paper and folded into an analogue 3D head. A procedure briefly explained in video chapter three of the full video registration of the Performance Lecture Mixed Reality

Below you can see the chapter four video showing the Tabula rasa performance. In the second half of this video Marcel Alberts gives his reflection on the piece. Scroll further down to see the photos for a quick impression.

MR project, group 3: Return to sender

The third student project group got fascinated by a shadow having its own life. In order to project a shadow that could be animated and at the same time have a front projection for the performer and objects was quite a challenge. Also they managed to do a simple 3D projection map on the physical cube.

A girl appears on stage and sees a large box. When touching the box a strange thing happens; her shadow gets a life of her own. The girl tries to gain control over the shadow in a struggle with light and darkness. Eventually she destroys the box and restores order. However this is not quite the end…

MR project, group 4: Schildeurij

This last student project group took the Droste effect, the endless repetition of an image in an image, as the starting point of their research. This ancient effect still has the power to mesmerize the audience. What will happen if somebody loseWeight Exercises their ball in a painting that is depicting the space where the painting hangs? Although the effect seems to be a simple live video feedback, suddenly the effect becomes much more complex, both technically and conceptually…
