What effect does the environment have on a work of art? With the green screen technique, you can place people and objects virtually in any location. How about a sculpture of you in a public square in Munich or New York? What are you waiting for? In this project, build your own greenscreen and experiment with different environments.

You will need

  • smartphone / tablet
  • large sheet of green paper or fabric
  • good lighting
  • green screen app or program

How important is the environment to art?

Step 1

Go in search of a large open space and photograph it.

 

Or search the internet for open spaces that are suitable for your artwork—feel free to search internationally!

Explained briefly

The green screen technique is used for photos or videos. Using, for example, a special app, photos are taken in front of a green background. The object or person in the foreground can thus be “cut out” and placed in front of another background.

 

Why green?

This color is the least common in the human body and the most dissimilar to skin color. Sometimes the color blue is used (blue screen).

STEP 2

Make your own green screen from a large sheet of green paper or fabric. Attach it carefully to the wall, for example.

 

Make sure it is well lit! It is best to use additional lamps to illuminate your green screen optimally.

STEP 3

Now use a green screen app or a suitable image editing program and follow the instructions there. Photograph or film your object or a person in front of the green background.

 

In the app, you can now choose any background and experiment with different surroundings.
