Splashy Hugo Boss-McLaren Architectural Projections, with Behind-the-Scenes Docu Short

3D projection mapping seems to be exploding in its commercial potential, as big-impact, architectural-scale visuals themselves become a medium. We’ve followed the work of German-born, Italy-based artist Roberto Fazio before. Here’s the latest example, which is not only documented but includes some behind-the-scenes insights into production. Lots o’ details below, plus a showreel:

MIDASpaces: Projection Mapping and Interaction Combine for a Responsive Performance Space

The Irish MIDAS collective has brought together programmers, designers, and composers working to fuse traditional and new techniques. Their premiere project is entitled “MIDASpaces,” a kind of dynamic performance space built on projection mapping and responsive interaction. As they describe it: MIDASpaces: An interactive projection mapped space designed for the Creative Arts. Using the Latest […]

Music Band, Animated: Wondrous Projection Mapping Makes Instruments Canvas

Beyond the immediate, and fleeting, novelty of seeing images fitted perfectly to three-dimensional objects, you need something to actually watch. Here, new work from Melbourne-based artist Chris Staring is splendidly fanciful: a band of assembled musical instruments is immersed in animation, a bit like walking into Toontown in Roger Rabbit. In fact, speaking of Disney, […]

Resolume 4: What’s New in AV VJ Tool, from Clip Handling to Projection Mapping and OSC Out

Resolume Avenue 4 has been announced today, with a beta version for Resolume owners due September 19. And it’s looking like a very nice upgrade, indeed. Having vastly improved stability, now functionality in Avenue is looking really mature, building on the almost Ableton-style audiovisual clip metaphor introduced in Avenue. I just played a short gig […]

Make a Building into an EQ, More MadMapper Projection Mapping Tutorials

MadMapper, the video projection mapping software for Mac, is now gaining some momentum. We’ll be looking at it more in the coming weeks, but to get you started, here’s an intro video showing what it does, and a tutorial from our friends at 1024 Architecture dealing with a popular project – turning a building into […]

Yarn, in Motion: Projection and Virtuality, Crocheted and Electronic, by Olek and Dev Harlan

Electronic aesthetics have been deeply rooted in live visuals, but that’s even greater reason to explore materiality. Dev Harlan, a New York-based artist working in sculpture, light, and projection, has built a collaboration with the now-legendary Polish-born, New York-crocheting Olek (aka Agata Oleksiak). Olek’s work has included what might best be described as crochet interventions. […]

Augmenting Surfaces, with Projection and Kinect: Augmented Engineering

With projected mapped to more than just the cinema-style plane, and now smarter integrated sensing and vision applications like Microsoft’s Kinect, all sorts of surfaces can come alive. It transforms projection from something cinematic to an interactive, dynamic part of the space. So, while this project isn’t new (both videos were released last year), it’s […]

An Augmented Tree, and Free Tools Power 3D Voxel Projection — on Leaves

In Lit Tree, the design team Kimchi and Chips create dances of light across a potted tree, augmenting the plant life by transforming its leaves into voxels. 3D volumetric projection create clouds of light. In time, it could even impact growth – a kind of bonsai technique with light. Given the work’s relevance both artistically […]

Euphorie live at the Elektra Festival. Photo courtesy Elektra. When a brainy, abstract audiovisual act can elicit some laughs and cheers, you know something is going right. Euphorie, the live music and projection act by Fran├žois Wunschel, Fernando Favier, and stage designer Pier Schneider of the collectives 1024 Architecture and EXYZT, isn’t brand new. But […]
