Watch stunning 1000 fps projection mapping on dancers’ faces

At the bleeding edge of advanced projection mapping, new techniques are aligning the virtual world ever closer to the real one. And whereas VR technology is all about putting your head inside a virtual world, mapping processes allow the world around us to become more fluid as a canvas. If you’re friends on Facebook with […]

Cascading Topologies of Data, in 3D Surface and Projection Mapping

Yota Devices / Scenarios from onionlab on Vimeo. Beyond the tired repetition of look-alike work, collaborations between areas like architecture and visual design really can light up our cities in new ways. I spent some time today touring the Fab Lab Barcelona, a multi-disciplinary fabrication studio peopled by experts in architecture and design. What’s special […]

Cubepix, Kinetic Projection Mapping On A Moving Wall of Cubes [Arduino + OF + Kinect]

Cubepix Demo Test – by Xavi’s Lab from Glassworks Barcelona on Vimeo. The next step in projection mapping: kinetic projection mapping. Moving beyond the sometimes-clinical use of projection mapping to use three-dimensional objects as a surface, the addition of the kinetic makes the surface itself part of the motion. Cubepix is a direct, lovely implementation […]

Reflections on Projection Mapping, as Masters and Apprentices Meet

Projection Mapping thoughts. Telenoika Mapping Workshop from Telenoika on Vimeo. The development of perspective illusion in Europe didn’t come from an individual artist. There was no single breakthrough moment. The refinement of the technique was a collective, communal activity, forged in workshops and apprenticeships. So, it’s fitting that the development of projection media around the […]

Automatically Projection Mapping a 3D, Moving Object: White Kanga Show Stunning Tech

Hide’n’Seek – Technology Demo from White Kanga on Vimeo. Automatically map an object with a projector. Keep the mapping working as the object moves. And, oh yeah, look damned fine while doing it. That’s the neat trick Poland-based White Kanga have pulled off, powered by TouchDesigner. We’ve been following their work before: Robotic Mapping Pulls […]

Stories Come to Life, as the Human Element Meets Projection Mapping

Projection mapping live performance art – The Alchemy of Light by a dandypunk from a dandypunk on Vimeo. “The Alchemy of Light” makes projection mapping more than a sculptural, light-painting illusion. It allows the digital motion image to interact with the performer. And the human performer is a big part of what makes this work. […]

Illuminated ‘Cello, Transforming the Object into Projection Mapping [MadMapper]

As projection design produces motion across an object, artists can create a kind of dance with a physical thing, bringing to life imagined, unseen facets of its being. French-born artist/VJ Jacques-AndrĂ© Dupont makes that evident in a new short film demonstrating projection mapping onto a violoncello. The object itself is, of course, exquisitely beautiful; projection […]

Not Just Projection Mapping: MadMapper Maps LED and Lights, Too [Updates; Beta]

You’re going to hear this a lot: “mapping” is more than just “projection mapping.” It’s the liberation of the digital image from screens and cinema-style rectangles, the ability to merge that imagery with any surface or lighting. That’s the idea – then, hand in hand with the idea, there are the tools. Tools both reflect […]
