Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture
A first year undergraduate 48 hour workshop at the Inspace Gallery at the School of Informatics. Working in teams of 4/5 the students were encouraged to make a short video piece that responded to the idea of a skin for the building. Because the data projectors at Inspace project on to translucent screens over glass windows, it was possible to move inside and outside the gallery to experience the skin as a form of membrane. Some works dealt with this phenomenon, whilst other works used the connection between the projectors to make large landscape movies that were synced in time. Ruairi Glynn and Paul Skinner developed custom software for the workshop to allow students to develop new drawing tools through hacking and experimentation. Documentation shot by Yuda Ho. Organised by Chris Speed.
