My Artist Talk At The Old Print Gallery

background map: Park La Brea Quilt #2

Yesterday, Friday, October 15th, I gave an artist talk at the Old Print Gallery in conjunction with my exhibition. The screen grab above is from a special opening slide that I made for the talk. Its the first HTML page that I have used the auto-refresh tag. It was designed to cycle through different maps every 10 seconds before the lecture began. I might add this feature to the front page of the website now that I see that it works. The talk lasted a little over an hour and included a brief Q & A at the end. Thank you to everyone who came.


Below are the “slides” that I used for my presentation and most are hyperlinked to their original entries:

The Lenz Project(ion)

The Lenz Projection is based on 4 simple items:
– Aerial or satellite image
– Torus (a donut)
– Transparent glass sphere
– Light source

The Lenz Projection was setup as follows:
– A light source is created to illuminate the scene
– The aerial or satellite image was placed in the direct center of the scene (the square peg)
– The Torus placed at the center of the scene and reduced so that the image fits exactly in the center (the square peg in a round hole)
– The transparent glass sphere was place at the center of the scene enclosing the image and half the diameter of the torus (Lenz)

By adjusting the the Z dimension (depth) of the transparent glass sphere over the square image in the circle, the Lenz causes the imagery to refract and fill the space of the circle.
