“Room Talk 1” is a photograph by Marion Gray captured as part of Craig Harris’ research and design project Configurable Space. Configurable Space explores future creative work environments, the creative process, and the use of new technological resources to support artistic functions. Configurable Space is directed towards the development of a balanced understanding about how we use the visual, aural, tactile, and configurable capabilities of digital technologies, and how the tools developed affect ways that we think, feel, formulate, and develop on intellectual, spiritual, and emotional planes.

The project is built upon the simulation of future creative environments using any available technology that could be used to support the illusion that the implied resources already exist. The simulations incorporate representations of interactive computer display tables, walls, and holographic images, within a multi-dimensional sound environment.

San Francisco-based photographer Marion Gray took over five hundred photographs during multiple sessions working in the constructed environment, using sketches on transparencies, colored gels, slide projections, and live drawing. These images capture various perspectives of room views and close images, documenting the sketching and representation process, the evolving environmental characteristics and the resource requirements during the evolution of a music composition. The composition was based on the creation and expression of the sonic world described above.

The original installation was constructed primarily for the purpose of creating the initial collection of slides and photographs, and not as a public art installation. The creative context emulates a non-real time studio shooting process, resembling a procedure which one would go through to create a series of animated sequences of visual material.

About Candy Kuehn Digital Illustrations

Candy Kuehn provides the following insights into her printing process to assist in producing the best results for printing and/or framing these prints: “I use Digital Fine Papers when printing my work. My favorites are Innova, Hahnemulle, Cansons  Infinity and Epson Fine Art Papers. My large works use roll papers – Epson Premium Photo Luster or Epson Legacy Baryta. My print files fit sizes A3 (13” x 17”) and A4 (17” x 22”). I download ICC profiles and follow prompts to install the profiles from the paper’s manufacturer’s guidelines. I use Adobe Photoshop as my go to editing program. I also test on one piece of paper; print and cancel; then try another setting turning the paper upside down, print and cancel until I am satisfied with the print results. (If you have a photo editing program, strips can be done that way as well.) For professional online printing, two options are and I also use local professional art printers in Minneapolis, such as Artist Resource Group ( Owner Terry Schopper’s knowledge is exceptional and brilliant.”

Please allow 4-6 weeks for printing and shipping of prints. Prints are often printed on demand, and we need to coordinate schedules with our high quality artwork printers. Please contact us about any special needs and we will try to accommodate.
