35mm slides; we provide a Cannon AE-1 Program camera and slide film.
There will be some shots needed from various
art books. Also shots of individual art work by private artists. If you have personal art that you have created, let us see
it. It might become part of the show with your permission.
Transparency maker (we provide the transparency film and master patterns)
of these transparencies are black and white. There are a few that will be in color. Mounting is done in a "mat"
frame with clear transparency film on each side or "sheet protectors" to protect the original pattern
Glass Stain Slide Artist/Painter
(we provide the glass slides and stain)
Glass stain slides will be your own creation. Anything from op-art, blobs,
patterns, or anything your mind can dream of.
Color & Black & White slide mounter (we provide the transparencies, slide
mounts and mounter)
These will be mounted in standard 35mm slide mounts. Most are glass mounts to protect the original
transparency as well as to prevent warpage and to keep it in focus.
Pattern cutter (we provide the materials)
The patterns are cut from
10" X 10" black mat board or paper and are normally done with a scissors or an Exacto knife.
Electronics technician: To build dimmers,
speed controllers, chasers, and strobes. Schematic diagrams & parts will be provided.
The strobes are "proprietary"
designs. Some are the standard low power U shaped flash tubes similar to what you would find in a Radio Shack box strobe.
Others are several times larger. The larger strobes were last used at a Haunted House the family did for 11 years. All that
remains are the flash heads. New power supplies and digital trigger circuits need to be built. Still larger strobes need to
be built from the ground up. The largest strobe flash tubes we have were used during WW II as air photography strobes. The
slow speed (25 ASA) film required a very bright flash. The aircraft would fly over enemy territory, open the camera shutter
and punch the flash. The flash would light up FIVE square miles! I have only run these at full power one time and people on
the dance floor covered thier eyes. A power reduction was decided upon at 1/4 the normal power. Still these flash tubes are
Dimmers: Dimmers need to be added to various
projectors. Some will be inside the projectors. Others will need to be built in control boxes.
Chasers: Most will be propritiary designs. These will be digital circuits
and need to be built from the ground up. Chasers will chase: strobes, Christmas lights, Big bulb (11 or 25 watt) 'stringers'.
controllers: Speed controls. Some will need to be built inside the projectors. Others will be outboard
in a control box.
Color and Lobster wheels: These need to be built from scratch. Some will be small; maybe 12"
in diameter. Others will be large; perhaps 36" in diameter.
