Documentation of The Pool at IAC

Premiere of The Pool at IAC with live music by Merche Blasco 12/2/2011

The Pool (standalone with original soundtrack)

The Pool brings a calm space for meditation, introspection and relaxation to the lobby of the IAC building. Swimmers break the surface, explore the 120 foot wide pool and interact with each other. It is a journey for both themselves and the audience.

Directed by Antonius Wiriadjaja and Valentina Camacho.

Music by Merche Blasco. Sound Design by Phan Visutyothapibal.

Special thanks to The Pool’s swimmers, Yoni Ben-Simhon, Nelson Ramon, Eszter Ozsvald, Paul May, Ju Yun Song, Eric Hagan, Emily Webster, William Jennings and Alex Kozovski.

Testing (really) Big Screens

This semester, I am working with Valentina Camacho, a very good friend and awesome creative partner, on content for a 120-foot-long screen at the IAC building. This is the fifth year Dan Shiffman has offered the class, and he takes great lengths to make sure we don’t reinvent the wheel. He provided us with several strategies and templates for every software imaginable. We were able to put up content within the second week of class, and last week got to test out our project ideas on one third of the screen.

Jumping in front of the Big Screens

Valentina is an amazing illustrator. We created a storyboard, sketched out some scenes/characters and she vectorized them for our animation. But as soon as we put them up on screen, everything looked different. The colors were off, brush patterns were magnified and subtle vector graphics became off-putting.

Vector Graphics Test

Fortunately, our time in grad school has taught us to always have a plan B. The night before, ITP’s equipment room also happened to acquire a new waterproof case for the Lumix LX5. I walked away from my coding and jumped in the pool with some mardi gras beads. We rendered out a 3840 X 1080 video of the camera under a faucet, in the pool and in puddles outside my apartment. It was intended to be a simple test, but the results were very visually stunning.
