Large Scale Projection: Conceptual Art Installation


I put up the poster 2/14/18 before the 2pm class rush on the Ansin 5th floor poster board. No one noticed the poster or seemed to look at the poster board at all. As I was sitting and watching I wondered about if more would help to draw attention and so I created another poster.

The addition did not make a change in engagement. I watched the space for awhile including at the 5:45 class end period and I did not observe anyone looking at them. I do read the posters sometimes. Walking through campus seeing the same posters creates a collective impact. With heightened awareness I noticed something in the elevator that inspired me. A hand print reminded me of Cave Art. I decided to work with it.

I started with one and Named it untitled, People did not seem to notice it. I rode up and down in the elevator for awhile and then had to go. I decided to recut, rename and  label both to make it less subtle.

It still seemed to be not seen.


I ran into Jenny Mae riding the elevator and she and a professor from WLP engaged came to see the elevator piece and with her encouragement I temporarily posted the posters on 1-12 of Ansin. I ran into a student named Bobby in the Darkroom when I was recutting my labels (I misspelled elevator, elavator). He said he saw it and thought it was enjoyable. He thought it meant that everything was art. He said he was more likely to engage with it because nobody was in the elevator.It was 8pm when I left Ansin. I decided to leave them up overnight. They were gone at 9:15am the next day.

Subtle Gifs that show Pixel life

I want to create subtle gifs that look like the page or pixels are crawling around.

<—this was an early attempt. Its a first step, and the first animated gif I have made in Photoshop in ages, but not quite what  I am going for.  have been searching for gif’s i like.


The gif below is inspiration. I want something with texture and feeling but more subtle and jumping out of the white space.


The Grey version below is my alteration of it…It is not quite subtle enough for me yet.



My final version for now is…

Mousing exercises

A vision has come into my mind of a need to offer visitors a ceremony for connecting to the web space. I am seeing mouse clicking exercises to help initiate the users use of the internet as a ceremonial ground. The exercises can be tailored to mouse users  and to touch screen users. There could be a series of various exercises.

What makes something something

One of the initial issues with the sacred sites is that they are hard to grasp. Ritual and sacred practice is recognizable from the tangible exercises. The beauty of web sites is they can be instantly manifested (and destroyed) and constantly changing. The question is what remains, what are the authentic artifacts of a sacred site on the

initial experience

For the first few days the sites stayed as they were I went through the cycle on multi pal computers and phones. I Thought about Engelbert and bit mapping. The bit mapping  process is invisible when we are using it. We just see and feel the mouse that allows us to reach into the machine.  Or the touch pad or touch screen. The idea that we can touch the information is interesting. Touch screens seem the most visceral while hiding the mechanics of the connection. I clicked quickly through the sites the first few days. I let them breathe and exist as they are.

The Beginning of Sacred Sites

I wanted to be in the right frame of mind to build the sites, and so it wasn’t until Thursday 10/5 that they were constructed. It was the fullest night of the full moon. My hope was to use Atom but the FTP additions were not working. I reluctantly tried Dreamweaver. The Dreamweaver interface has improved and it is a pretty sweet coding environment with built in ftp. I created the four sites first. Then the eight then the 16. due to a lack of formatting the numbers were small and stuck together in the upper left corner.
