Artist Projection Maps Everyday Objects [Video]
A messy bedroom and dirty sink are transformed into futuristic pieces of art.
Artist and part-time design teacher Akihiko Taniguchi‘s work includes installations, performance art and video using self-built devices and software.
Taniguchi’s latest project, as opposed to using traditional sharing methods such as Instagram or Facebook, digitizes everyday objects in 3D using a Kinect creating a digital catalog of everyday events. The events he chooses to cover include everyday foods such as noodles and fruit and everyday routines such as cooking and sleeping. Transforming these actions that come so naturally to us into both a 3D-mapped object and thus a piece of art takes them out of their context and making the viewer think about them in a different light.
