Digital Carousel

multimedia installation

Digital Carousel was an installation in HELLO OPERATOR in August 2010. It was a group effort of five MSc Multimedia students from DCU who took old slides from 1970's carousel projector and animated them using After Effects, Photoshop and Illustrator.

It combined both analogue and digital forms of projection and dealt with the concept of memory and nostalgia. The installation comprised of a 13 minute digital animation which was timed to the intervals of the 80 slides shown on the analogue Kodak Carousel Projector.

The short documentary of the set up of the installation and the opening night is below. More information and the full animation can be found on the DIGITAL CAROUSEL BLOG.
