Projection-Mapped Panels Explore The Space Between Real And Digital Worlds [Video]
A new genre of visual art expression is emerging.
San Francisco based studio Bot & Dolly put together a projection-mapping show displaying a synthesis of real and digital space on moving surfaces, which was captured entirely in camera. Known for its automation, robotics, and film-making techniques, this engineering studio’s central mission is to express creativity through the eyes of large scale mechanics.
The short film titled Box features an artist guiding blank panels affixed to industrial machinery in a mind-boggling performance of surreal video technique projections.
As a promotional piece, the Box is meant to display the forward leaping technology currently available in the media world. Bot & Dolly believes projection mapping can “tear down the fourth wall” in the theater by radically transforming the way visual art is displayed.
