Wednesday November 25th, 12:00 ‚Äď 1:00 pm // WORKING FROM HOME: MONITOR CALIBRATION Workshop with Thomas Kneub√ľhler, Post Image Lab
If you work on an editing station at Concordia, you can typically expect a calibrated monitor which lets you judge the color of your still or moving images. Now that many of us are working from home, you might wonder, how much can I trust the colors I see on my own screen?
The workshop will cover basics on color matching problems, as well as provide hands-on solutions for adjusting your monitor in a home setting. After an introductory presentation, there will be a Q&A. The duration of the workshop is around 45 minutes.
Request the Zoom link by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org Please let us know if you are a student, faculty or member of a research group.
The Lab will be reopening again starting Monday August 17. There are a some restrictions and new protocols in place, so please read the info below carefully.
Access to the building You need to be on the access list to enter the building. By now, Full-time and Part-time Faculty, as well as¬† students from the MFA Studio Arts program are on the list. You know that your are on that list if you have received an invite to complete the COVID-19 online training, and an email regarding the weekly self evaluation. If you are a student other then MFA Studio Arts and need access, we advice you to check with your program director or supervisor. If you are part of a research group or a PhD student, contact your director/supervisor to see if he/she can get you on the access list.
Workstations and Reservations In order to reduce the amount of people who are in the space at the same time, we have now 3 work area.
– Printer area (11880 and Solvent Printer)
– Scanners area (Imacon and Flatbed)
– Editing Station
Only one person is allowed per work area, so there will be one booking for both printers, and one booking for both scanners and one booking for the editing station. The Chromira is offline for the time being.
You can make you reservations as in the past in PIR, but there are some restrictions:
– You can work in the lab 7 days a week, but only from 9 am to 10pm.
– You can only hold maximum two reservation in advance (two time slots).
To make best use of this limited access model, it is very important that you cancel your reservation in case you can‚Äôt make it. Also please be in time for your booking. Note that you can‚Äôt cancel/modify a booking anymore once it started. In that case, please send and e-mail to email@example.com
Failure to follow these rules may result in a cancelling of your booking and a loss of you access privileges.
COVID-19 protocol – Wash hands in the bathroom before you start working at the lab.
– Disinfect keyboard, mouse, printer and scanner buttons ‚Äď basically ¬†everything you might touch before AND after usage. Apply the disinfectant (70 per cent isopropanol solution) directly onto a cloth, then wipe the surface gently. Don‚Äôt use brown paper towels. Supplies are beside the wardrobe.
– For more details please consult Concordia’s¬† COVID-19 safety guidelines
Working with an RA / collaborator In general we expect you to have your work meetings outside the lab. However, to look at prints it might be unavoidable to meet inside the lab.¬† In that case you will have to make a booking for the Viewing Area. This will authorize an extra person in the space.
The guiding principle is: Nobody should enter the lab without having a booking / reservation. It‚Äôs the only way to avoid that we have all of a sudden a crowd of people in the lab.
Also note that the VR section of¬† the space will remain close, and activities will be conducted online for the time being.
The lab will be closed starting Monday March 16, and¬† it will remain closed at least until March 29 until further notice. All equipment will be offline, so no booking possible until we have a confirmed reopening date. If you work on a project from home, and you need some advice or remote support, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
For all those who thought the invention of Photoshop changed the way we read photos, think again. Petapixel just publish an article about portraits made by AI, photos of people who never exists. This looks like the end of stock photography, but for artist, the fun times are only about to start!
