Projection Materials

Last Thursday, we started the production side of this project. During the day we started researching materials that we would use to project the visuals onto. We found that lycra is the best material to use, because the visuals appear clear and you can stretch the material to create a complete flat surface with no creases.

Here are some pictures of our small set up for our testing.

Projecting onto tracing paper

The visuals looked a bit dull when projected onto tracing paper.

Projecting onto Screen Boards

The visuals on the screen board projected much more detail than the tracing paper, however the surface wasn’t flat as there where a few creases in certain places.

Projecting onto Lycra

Lycra proved to be the best for displaying visuals in great detail and with a smooth surface.
