Urban Projection Critique - Kevin Walker
There are many things that I admire about the piece 555 KUBIK. The first thing that stands out at me is the visual quality of the projection on the wall. The high resolution dueled with the straight lines of the cubes really maximize the characteristics of how the pixels work with the projector. I also found the animation in this piece to be quite pleasing to the eye; simple movements among the "blocks" on the building producing interesting architectural statements. The sounds in the piece were really minimized in this piece which seemed to give us only the sounds we would naturally hear from the movement in the piece, and i felt like it completed the piece for me.
If there was anything i could ask for more from this piece, it would be two things. One, I would have like to see a some interaction between the piece and the viewer, maybe a way they can get more involved with the piece via motion sensor or laser pointer. And Secondly, it would have been nice to see the setting within the piece to be more broad, in which i mean taking the blocks and replacing them with maybe different square objects such as maybe, a rubix cube, instead of a concrete blocks.
Overall, "555 KUBIK" is a great piece and I really enjoyed viewing it.
