Optical, mechanical and kinetic experiments

Julien Maire, invited to complete a residency at the Institute for Provocation, continues his research in China into what he calls "cinema in relief", a method of projecting images, printed in volume.

Thanks to 3D printing, a computer-generated image that was a digital abstraction, now takes on a tangible form. The output born of this process appears to us today in an unedited format. Our senses are disturbed - these objects defy all traditional manufacturing models.

He experiments with traditional shadow theatre techniques and a creation of volume, as well as in the movement of designs in bas-relief. He has written a screenplay and directed a new projection that uses 3D prints and the employment of techniques that are simultaneously optical, mechanical and kinetic, resulting in an experience that disturbs our senses and our perception of reality.

Workshop 1: 3 May - 3D-printing and Cinema

In this workshop we will use 3D-animation software to develop a scene with movement and animation. Then we will print out frames of the animation that become a form of shadow play when projected. The workshop will introduced participants to 3d design, mechatronic and 3D Printing. (Each participant need to bring a laptop Mac or Win)

Workshop 2 : 10 May - Persistence of Vision

This workshop will develop a small installation called “Secret Messenger” using LED-lights that produce text when in motion. The text, first only visible as blinking lights becomes readable when photographed with long exposure. The participants will engage in some basic coding and mechanics, 3d design and 3D printing to build and programme the LEDs panels.

Workshop 3: 17 May - Machine Hacking 

This workshop will reuse discarded electronic hardware like a printer,scanner which, combined with digital fabrication will be reprogrammed and transformed into a new machine with new capabilities. Participants will deconstruct the existing hardware and use its parts to re-imagine its use and create a new type of machine. 

Each Participant are invited to bring theyr own Laptop and  to bring a broken electronic machine  ( printer,  scanner , cd player etc )

All the workshops are free but registration is required. Please send a brief introduction of yourself or CV/portfolio to ifpworkshop@iprovoke.org
