Setup

Live video feed from the street is projected on the canvases. Indoors you see people walking by first on the canvas and then behind the window, then again disappearing through the other canvas. The background (street and buildings) is extracted from the video feed.

The exhibition


14.8.–2.11.2009
Gottberg–Kåhre Project: A Dialogue
A part of the Helsinki Festival programme
Susanne Gottberg & Markus Kåhre
Amos Anderson Museum

"Gottberg–Kåhre Project
Susanne Gottberg and Markus Kåhre, two greatly acclaimed Finnish artists with highly differing styles of expression, recently hit upon a new dynamic of collaboration and after two years in the studio, are now ready for their exhibition at the Amos Anderson Art Museum.

Building on active dialogue and a continual exchange of ideas on art, reality and the act of seeing, their piece is at once more spatial than an installation, more illusory than a painting and more alive than a film. Things are no longer what they seem, the impossible is now a possibility."

Looks good!

Susanne Gottberg, Markus Kåhre, Ramyah Gowrishankar and Liisa Tervinen were today at the Amos Anderson museum to test once again the projection. We tried out white and black backgrounds and some different tints in the Processing. The best color seemed to be grey with (textile) canvas as a projection material. That way there was still enough contrast with the people walking by and the canvas. The result was painting-like - and it fits nicely to the exhibition.

Check up at Amos

Today we met Markus Kåhre at the Amos Andersson museum to check up how the script works. It went well and the lighting conditions seem to work nicely. We decided to meet again next week to check things out with a projector and test it so that Susanne Gottberg also sees it.






Thinking about how to connect the camera to the window.

Testing in cloudy weather

We met up today at the Amos Andersson museum with Ramyah to test the camera outside the building. We use Apple's iSight connected to a MacBook Pro with firewire. The right place for the camera seemed to be between the double windows of the museum. Tomorrow we will test some more inside the museum.
