Jellyfish! – Playing With Par Cans

Over the holidays, I’ve been experimenting with scarves as an extension of an idea born in the meeting I had with Danny and Cole back in November.

I hired 2 DMX RGB LED par cans from uni scores, and have been experimenting with using them in different ways.

I started experimenting with ways to make the scarves easily visible to the camera, as well as experimenting with trying to convey sea creatures with them.
I then had a few experiments with controlling them via DMX and using them to create contrasting layers by lighting foreground and background differently, which created a striking effect.

I’d like to experiment with getting them to react directly to the balls if I can get them to do so without messing up the colour tracking.
