For the fantastic opportunity to showcase my project at the Summer Show at Calcutta House, London Met, I would require the following: One large table, no smaller than 150 by 100cm (to hold the caravan/theatre One projector, but preferably two if possible (one for the theatre, the other for the museum) (if only one is possible I would require basic lighting for illuminating the museum) A small dark room (or area where darkness can be achieved to make the projection more effect
Here is a video showing the final installation (project). The entire projected animation and accompanying imagery has been shot with the camera in a locked off position, and the caravan/theatre has been animated to show a transformation into the 'other side' (the museum), showcasing the collection of miniatures and puppet in situ. In the 2018 summer show, and other such exhibitions, the project will be displayed in a way that enables both sides to be seen as people wander aro
Here are two video presentations. The first is of the final catalogue, where I have transformed an original Edwardian photo album with new photos depicting different stages of the project's development, along with accompanying theoretical quotes (looking back at the research for my two essays) and, on certain pages, lyrics and annotations associated with the project's song. The second video shows a miniaturized version of this catalogue, in the form of a booklet that would ef
This document (the first page from my catalogue) summarizes my starting points for my project, including theoretical and thematic areas explored. The rest of the catalogue, also seen here, features a series of key quotes. Basically, this project began as an exploration into Simulation and Simulacra, i.e. the study of replicas and that copies of objects, or even people, can be deemed superior or, in this case, more 'magical' than the original. I also studied Mythology and Cabi
Following the foam board replica of the caravan, it deemed necessary to at least re-make some of it out of wood to ensure a sturdier body for the projection/museum. I decided to make the bulk of it (main body) out of plywood and keep the wheels and roof as foam board, since they are more complicated. The following video shows the development of this, all made in the workshop at London Met. I came up with the idea of dowels with castors to support the weight of the caravan, an
To hold all the miniatures of my 'Wind in the Willows' collection I decided to make miniature versions of the cabinets that hold the actual artifacts, seen in the photos below. They have been made out of (mostly) foam board and the process behind the replica VHS/DVD tower is seen in the video below.
