This Friday in Quebec City, Transistor Design is presenting its 3rd skateboard art show called Futur at Le Cercle. The theme is based on the 4th dimension which is defined by light. To represent this, they went 40 years back before the the apparition of the photo camera using the photogram technology where the object is not being reproduced by print but by light exposure only. There you have the representation of a kick flip being decorticated almost under Xrays. It took many takes to come up with the final result since you can only see the results once you take out the paper out of the chemical solution. With a concept like that, imagine the creations from the artists who will put their ideas on a skateboard... Need more info, visit www.transistordesign.com
Vendredi prochain au Cercle de Québec, Transistor présente sa 3e exposition d'art sur skateboard. Le concept de l'expo est que dans le futur, tout sera relier à la 4e dimension qui est la lumière. Pour bien représenter le tout, ils ont voulu faire un retour en arrière avec la technique du photogramme, qui 40 ans avant l'apparition de l'appareil photo, était utilisé pour documenter des objets.Donc, ils ont voulu développer une affiche sans l'aide de l'impression mais ayant comme source, la lumière. Ceci à donné une exposition sur un papier photographique du mouvement des étapes d'un kick flip. Plusieurs tests ont été réalisés pour avoir l'affiche idéal car, lors de l'exposition du papier photographie, ils n'est pas possible de voir le résultats tant et aussi longtemps que le papier n'a pas été développé avec les solutions chimiques.Le but de ce concept était de déconstruire le kick flip pour visualiser toutes les étapes du mouvement.
