Polyscreening 2: Design and structuring of multi-channel projections

February 8-9, 15-16 and 22-23, 2014, 10 am to 5 pm

January 7 to 31, 2014

During this workshop, participants will be introduced to various projection systems and will learn how to configure multichannel installations and create content for them. As well as an overview of recent projects using these technologies, the workshop will deal with the technical components, the modules, and the production line used in multi-projector installations. Towards the end of the first session, participants will have developed a work plan for the realization of a piece of synchronized multichannel video art.

The workshop will also deal with various aspects of video art practice, including shooting techniques as adapted to multichannel production and the processing of data gathered during the shoot. Participants will also be introduced to digital editing tools, image processing, image composition, and multi-projector synchronization systems. Finally, participants will be given the opportunity to prepare, edit and present the videos filmed during the workshop. 

This workshop will be conducted in French by bilingual instructors.

Allison Moore

Native to Victoria, British-Colombia, Allison Moore studied interdisciplinary art and video at Concordia University where she received in 2005 a Bachelor’s degree with honours in Fine Arts. Active in the artistic community in Canada and abroad for the past ten years, she has participated in numerous exhibitions, residencies, workshops and events. Her work explores in a playful and systemic manner the fascinating universe of the dematerialization and the decontextualization of the image and the body as much on a conceptual level than on a technological one.

Nelly-Eve Rajotte

After obtaining a master's degree from the School of Visual and Media Arts at UQÀM, Nelly-Eve Rajotte, a multidisciplinary artist, investigates the relationship to space and explores the arborescence of physical sensations and psychological states through sound and image. She borrows from cinematographic strategies of editing and staging effects that not only transform, but also aestheticize reality. The sound environment doubles the sensitive potential of the work by denying or exalting the discourse of the image.
