Projection-Mapped Sculptures Blink and Breathe
Do these Studio BK projections bring existing aspects of the sculptures to life, or are they something new completely?
Maybe you’ve read the ecstatic words of an archaeologist or art historian who learns some crucial piece of information that “brings the sculptures to life.” Or maybe you’ve just seen Night at the Museum. Either way, living sculptures have been a fantasy for ages, and now expert projection mapping by French digital production company Studio BK has made it happen at The Fine-Arts Museum of Lyon.
The Mirage Festival of art and innovation in Lyon invited BK’s head creative, Arnaud Pottier, to design frameworks specifically for three sculptures at the museum, the Odalisque by James Pradier (1841), First funeral by Antoine Etex, and Perseus Slaying the Gorgon by Laurent-Honore Maqueste.
