**JANIE GEISER - PROJECTED OBJECTS LABORATORY**
Projected Objects will be a hands-on laboratory exploring the intersection of objects, architecture,
miniatures, bodies (human and artificial) with directed light and projection. We will use the building as
our site, and create ephemeral site-specific installations and performances. Participating artists can
work collaboratively or on solo projects.
Throughout the history of projection, from the magic lantern to contemporary digital video, from
phantasmagoria shows to projections on skyscrapers, projection has intersected with objects to create
ephemeral spaces, illusions, shifts of scale, and uncanny performances and installations. In this
workshop, we will consider and explore these intersections of projected light and objects. We will start
with the core elements of projection-without-projectors (using light, lenses, shadows, translucence) and
move into digital projection, especially as it intersects with the material world.
We will use the space itself, along with found or constructed objects. Participants are encouraged to
bring interesting objects that can be the subjects of projection or the receptacles of projection. Other
materials to bring could include transparent or translucent materials (prisms, lenses, magnifying glasses,
fabrics, acetate, plastic bottles or packing materials, toys, images printed on acetate, 35mm slides,
colored glass, etc), flashlights and cell phones, tablets, laptops, or various small lamps or projection
devices. We will play with live-feed and found video and create live installation/s exploring the
ephemeral essence of projection as it engages with the artifice of tangible materials as and the human
Participants: Art students, experimental film students, professional artists and experimental filmmakers from Warsaw.
