07 Mar The Best of Projection Mapping Inspiration: Experimental Surfaces
This blog is kinda turning into “Projection Mapping Watch”, but oh well. Projection mapping is awesome, and these weird videos of experimental light projects aren’t gonna collect themselves. In this segment, we’re taking a look at recent projects from Q1 of 2016 that highlight projection onto interesting surfaces, or combine projection with other emerging technologies.
Projection Mapping & VVVV
As projection mapping becomes increasingly popular, we’re seeing an uptick in related digital tools and software. “vvvv is a hybrid visual/textual live-programming environment for easy prototyping and development. It is designed to facilitate the handling of large media environments with physical interfaces, real-time motion graphics, audio and video that can interact with many users simultaneously.” Created by Maria Mitsi, this little experiment explores the capabilities of vvvv.
Light as art in Lithuania
Lithuania’s Barbora Giliute explores projection mapping on canvas, adding depth and additional dimensions to two-dimensional gallery displays.
Projection Mapping on Ceramics
Taipei-based artist Joshua Chao creates a living Ming vase with projection-mapped patterns on ceramic.
Projection Mapping 3D
Combining two emerging technologies into one? Yes, please. Spanish artist Dominic Plaza collaborated on Axioma, “a sterescoping / 3D mapp[ed] interpretation of geometry … such as points, lines, planes, curves, surfaces, polygons, etc.” In other words, a trippy geometric visual experience that comes a live with 3D glasses.
Because we Can: Building Art

INVICTA: Projection Mapping on Letters
This intensely urban project was a collaboration between Lyft Creative Studio & Xesta Studio.
