Video Diamonds for ISHI



Video mapping on Panels.
Edward Ruiz 2010
Designing , building and projecting media for the band ISHI.
These photos were taken at a ranch just outside Dallas county . It turned out to be a great location to try out the new set , my first live show / rehearsal with the band.



One of my first tests was out on the sidewalk. Back at the studio I spent time creating original visuals to go along with each of the bands songs. Once the visuals were created it was just a matter of loading them into my software, then mapping the projection onto the panels.

Piece of cake ... looks like i'm in the zone...

I really enjoyed showing with Kasten,her paintings are colorfull and full of play.

I had two pieces in the show , the wall with the color diamonds and a collaboration with Kasten's sofa piece.

Lighting the Dallas Burlesque Festival ...






By using L.E.D.'s to light the set piece I was able to color match or contrast with each performers costume and provide color changes throughout the night.
The set was simple, a facade of the Texas Theater on one side and a screen on the other.
Center stage was kept open and a traditional follow spot was used to light up the performers.
