Helsinki Design Week 2017 | Walk-in video environment - Immersive Video Scenography
A site-specific project created for Helsinki Design Week in collaboration with Plastique-Fantastique, to highlight and enhance the pneumatic structure with panoramic videoprojection. The installation embraced the metalworkers' statue in the center of Helsinki, Kolmen sepän aukio, where project concept focus on craftsmanship, the blacksmith, the human and 'dirt' - industrial hard work.
Due to technical issue, the panoramic video projections on the pneumatic structure were not can be displayed.
In any optimal case the audience will face a large projected surface created by multi-projection which will work as a visual canvas for filmed sequences, both as one, big, panorama screen, cinemascope ratio or splitting screens into more panels.
Therefore, viewers are subjected to an interplay between image, sound, and spatial structures, configurations that transforms select sites into immersive walk-in experiences in expanded cinema, sound, and new media installation.
The work investigated the purity of the shape blended with the purity of the images, a tough industrial form and a tough film, architectural brutalism, visual brutalism, machines, softness, sharpness, tears, industry, ruins, landscape, bird-eye view, are items in issue.
Noises of screwed bolts and the creaking of metal attached to crank and chains suspended in space can be heard. A journey to the charm of industrial hardness associated with high-rise brutalist gaunt, telling a condition of work and life, comparing it abstractly with refining metals by smelting, casting it into shapes, and filing to shape and size.
Video environments installations, require site-specific locations, large is usually best – the easiest way to achieve this is through multiple projections.
panorama screen: 14 meter length, 3 meter height
