Museum of fine arts gender bending fashion
February 01, 2019
In the Winter of 2019, I worked with Black Math to build a projection mapped installation as a part of the Museum of Fine Arts upcoming Gender Bending Fashion installation. The installation itself was the a large room at the very end of the exhibition, and served as a conclusion to the process. It consisted of 9 raised platforms, with a mannequin each modeling culturally significant clothing in the history of gender bending fashion.
To map the room, we used three high powered projectors, showing a video loop. Using Cinema 4D, early on in the project I constructed a model of the installation to be used both to test projection mapping, as well as to provide communication between the client and us, though this I was able to also approximate what arrangement of projectors could supply proper coverage to the mannequins scrims. To build the projection mapping, I used adobe after effects, though this, I was able to create a comp that allowed for all the fine grain control required to map the real space. The opening for the show received a fantastic crowd, and the installation remained open from march 2019 to august of 2019.
