Tent Academy Awards 2007
Scenography, exhibition design for TENT
Ooze were commissioned to produce the scenography and exhibition design for the 8th edition of the TENT Academy Awards, a national competition between young audiovisual artists. The award recognises the best final exam videos, films, shorts and animations from all the Dutch art academies. In 2007, for the first time, the Awards included an exhibition in TENT where the current winners were presented alongside previous editions of the competition.
The expression and materialization of spaces of projection and visualization was the underlying theme in this installation. Two giant screen units for the communal projections (the 2007 competition films) and four small TV units for the archive of the preceding year were constructed. Together the elements form a landscape of trapezoidal projection boxes of differing scale, for various types of projection experiences: one to be experienced in a group, the other one more intimate allowing the viewer to be immersed in the archive.
