Monitor Calibration Workshop

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 postimage@concordia.ca Please let us know if you are a student, faculty or member of a research group.

Lab Reopening August 17th

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’t make it. Also please be in time for your booking. Note that you can’t cancel/modify a booking anymore once it started. In that case, please send and e-mail to postimage@concordia.ca

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’s 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.

 

 

 

 

 


Lab closure

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 postimage@concordia.ca .

Stay safe!

Summer Lab Hours – Important Information

tumblr_nyrg7aLInd1qzdvk4o1_1280

The Post-Image Lab is closed to non-members for the month of July and will resume operations and normal hours to students and non-members in August. Inquiries can be sent to postimage.research@gmail.com but please note that response time for inquiries will be delayed as the coordinator is also out office for the month of July.

Important Updates:

1. Lab Closure

For the month of July, members may still use the lab but there will be no booking system available or technical support. It is on a first come first serve basis. We are well stocked with printing materials but if  you still run out of your favourite paper, there is nothing that can be done. If you do use the lab, please shake White and Metallic Silver ink cartridges on the solvent printer.

2. New VR Station 

There are a couple new stations at the back of the lab designed for VR research, which is being led by new post-image member Daniel Cross. Please don’t alter the placement of their setup. When the lab reopens at the beginning of August, we can rethink how to design the space for the upcoming academic year.

3. Welcome new members!

A warm welcome to new affiliate, student and faculty members to post-image! We are looking forward to a productive and exciting new year at post-image with several cross-cluster and interdisciplinary events in the works. Please do not hesitate to approach me (Pascha) about ideas you may have for events or questions concerning upcoming cluster activities for the 2018-19 academic year.

4. Upcoming end-of-summer event

We are hoping to have a meet and greet at the end of August or beginning of September at the Post-Image lab. This would be a great opportunity to share event ideas, projects-in-motion and new work among members. 

We will also be launching a catalogue of the 2017 print fundraiser to coincide with this event. 

More info on this event and how you can participate will be forthcoming in August.

Wishing everyone a safe and relaxing summer break. See you in August!
