The Creators Project: New Film Charts The Rise Of Projection Mapping
A brief documentary looking at the growing popularity among audiovisual artists of creating fantastic 3D motion sculptures and environments using focused light animations.
Projection mapping has officially become an essential skill for any audiovisual artist. The technique, which involves the projection of 3D motion graphics onto the surface of a three-dimensional form, can transform static objects using only light. The result is stunning—the exterior of the form appears alive with the projected animation, transforming it into a dynamic object. Because of the possibilities it opens up for interactive experiences, this technique is rapidly gaining popularity with visual artists and musicians like Lumpens and Amon Tobin. In his short documentary, Augmented Reality, Belgian filmmaker Dane Luttik provides an overview of projection mapping. Featuring works by Creator AntiVJ and Jean-Michel Verbeeck, the film offers insight on the process of projection mapping and its significance to art, music, and technology.
