Update #2

Retablos + testing

1 comment

Almost there!  Thanks to support like people like you, it looks like the project is going to make it.  In typical fashion, though, it is exciting to the end... ($150 left with 3 days left).  I am feeling good though, and have booked my flight and begun purchasing the equipment that I need for the project.  Install date is April 21st, so things are happening fast...

Here are some pics of the retablos if you hadn't seen them already.  Also is a shot of a test I was doing with different papers, testing translucent materials over the monitors where the retablos will be shown.  The one shown is a rice paper from Thailand.  I may go with a vellum or nothing at all, but I want to make sure that the balance between tech and traditionally is finely tuned-- these details make a difference.

I'm in the midst of animating the retablos, which takes some time.  Next I'll be testing the sensors and the way that they trigger the video.  More on that soon!  I'll try and post updates amidst the craziness.

THANK YOU AGAIN, everyone.  I'm excited about the project and hope to share it with others soon.
