Projection & Mobile Location Interactivity

Media artist, designer, researcher and Associate Professor at OCADU (since 1986)

Idiosyncratic video installation and interactions commenting on language and technology.

Michael Tweed on Shea’s work:
“the authority of the word, even the comforting sovereignty of the image, is revealed to be what it is: the elegant cloak of our still timid unknowing. Shea does not impose or catalogue the seemingly countless variations of melancholy and despair to which we are prone. What he does provide however is a sort of topography of courage, sketching the geography that stretches between optimism and resignation, hope and despair. ”

Experience: Pillar Building II

The finishing touches were made to the pillar. The bottom edge was paper mache to appear smooth. The sides and top were painted white with a sponge to give it a stone texture and the tray was drilled to the pot and screws with bolts were used to keep it together.

Experience: Pillar Building

I was really unsure of what to use to build pillars. A sturdy, safe design was needed without spending a lot of money. The trip to the dollar store had me spending a lot of time trying to figure out if things could break and how I really really don’t want that to happen.
I tried to cut back on the things that I buy at the dollar store, only because I tend to buy more than I need. The essentials to building this were purchased first: duct tape and paint. Since the objects were undecided, I went around the aisles looking at objects. I ended up getting a large plastic planter pot thing and a round metal baking tray.
My instinct was the flip the planter upside down to get a sturdier base and stick the metal sheet on top to create a larger standing surface, a foot diameter.

Other people suggested having it the original way and putting the metal on top of the opening.

That didn’t seem sturdy to me, but I was able to have a guy stand on it without it collapsing.

The problem I have with this design is that the non-stick baking sheets are difficult to glue to. Hopefully my team has a drill, so I can screw & bolt them togther.
