Rick Hutton: GOBO PROJECTIONS

Projection

A collection of organic and photographic projections of Hi-resolution “GOBOS”. Gobos are small glass discs that are custom made utilizing dichroic thin-film optical coatings that are deposited on glass in a High-Vacuum chamber. The thin-films are then patterned with an etching process to generate micron sized pixels. This allows the mixture of colors and defined lines to reveal the original image. The gobo is then placed in an imaging projector and that image is then magnified and projected on a surface.
