Light sculptures

Tired of flat surfaces? Joanie Lemercier, known by the name antivj, was seen here recently with a terrific tutorial on Wii VJing. Now antivj is back with a terrific video performance, projecting onto 3D forms.

just did a new video, and I thought you might be interested as well: it’s a visual performance I did in January (for clubtransmediale festival in Berlin). The idea is to use regular projectors to project on 3D elements and volumes instead of screens. It’s called “visual mapping” (here on some sculptures done by visomat)

Visomat, Inc. did the polygonal forms, as Joanie added a second layer of “light sculpture.” It’s far more satisfying than just watching virtual polygons projected: the 3D forms are real. Video and lots of images at the project site:

Light Sculptures @ Club Transmediale

I hope we’ll see this more regularly. Of course, that probably means some of us visualists not lucky enough to have a collaborator better learn some physical sculpting skills fast — and re-learn how to get projection onto surfaces!

  • Ah. I was lucky enough to see that firsthand when Share went to Club Transmediale. Was quite nice. Ah. fond memories of Europe.

  • we do this kinda stuff in la

    we set up 2 projectors to project onto the people dancing, and i made a special video to be used on peoples bodies.
    the outcome was amazing, the video i made really animated onto the peoples bodies, made it look as if the lines/colors were dancing on the peoples bodies

    we also projected onto "tipi's" we once made, some were around 7 ft tall, the rest a little smaller then that, looked alot more "tribal" rather then minimal/futuristic one in the pic above.

    were throwing another party pretty soon combining tons of elements, projections/installations/leds/crt monitors/neon crt wire
    that will be the day before daft punkkk playss :0

    You can find the same kind of stuff, . The guy uses only projector in a pretty smart way.
