Projection Mapping in Merchandising Display Applications

What's one way to show your wares without taking up space to store them? Employ the services of a good 3D projection mapper. I can't stop thinking about all the possibilities for projectors and creative projection mapping in the retail arena. This video, however comes from a trade show environment where dollars and opportunity make it critical to look big in the smallest space possible.

Kill the Box in all Endeavors Including Projection Mapping

A dandypunk is a harbinger of nonconformity. This one uses projection mapping in performance art that is a sheer delight to watch. In this short clip of a longer performance you cannot help but feel the energy generated by this type of interactivity with light, images, and concepts which could not be expressed as well in any other way. The message? There is no box. info@adandypunk.com

Projectors and Wedding Cakes Unite for Unique Reception

3D Projection mapping on a wedding cake is so creative and alluring that if I were attending this wedding reception I might even forget to ask if the cake was chocolate. This couple chose to display a game of Donkey Kong animated by DJ and lighting company Posh Entertainment. If it had been my wedding we'd have used the 3D projector to display Galaga as playing that game was an integral part of our courtship. Great idea and very creative projection.

Beaming with Ideas

Everyone is talking about Juan and how happy he makes people. My jaded soul's first response is "It's an ad for LG." But still, it should not detract from the happiness that video artists can bring in so many ways when they get creative with projectors and help the art of 3D projection mapping to evolve. That is the core of the viral success of this ad.

Glowarp and a Shift in Projection Mapping

This mapping project by Glowarp was from a contest held earlier this year. Sit back and enjoy the glorious voice of Placedo Domingo and witness some evolution in 3D projection mapping: the introduction of a concept.

Festival Focuses on Reshaping Public Space through Media Art

I hope to see more of these festivals all over the world. The Screen City Festival is taking place later this month (October 25th – 27th 2013.) in Stavanger/Sandnes Norway.

The whole concept comes from an attempt to study the moving image presented in public spaces, on the city`s facades, shop windows and urban venues in order take Stavanger out of its urban context through the vehicle of media art.more

3D Projection Mapping on a Moving Surface is Like Magic

Production House Bot & Dolly have released this short film which I have officially placed at the top of my list of my favorite videos ever featured here in Creative Projection. "Box" is like nothing I have seen before. It uses robot powered projection mapping on moving objects to make the viewer consider the synthesis of real and digital space. The short film documents a live performance, captured entirely by camera.

If you watch on thing today let it be this so you can levitate, teleport and escape. And remember "Any significantly advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." Arthur C. Clarke

Projectors Revolutionize "The Wall" Tour

Roger Waters' "The Wall Live" Concert tour is winding down after 27 performances across Europe. In this brief video, the co-founder of Pink Floyd, expresses his excitement over where projection technology was back in the 1970's (when he started touring) and the magnificent heights it is reaching now.more

Projection Mapping and The Magic Flute

There is not much to share about this delightful display of 3D projection mapping in the arts sphere other than it comes from the Stavanger Concert Hall in Norway where Mozart's Magic Flute was performed last September. Technicians used Motion Graphics with Adobe After Effects and modeling and Softimage XSI for the 3D modeling and animation.

3D Bodies: A Mixed Reality Performance

Check out this mixed reality performance which uses a virtual world as the platform from which to explore 3D immersive spatial virtual and physical displays. You'll witness the performer ´s body interacting with three dimensional space because of computer vision, skeleton tracking, and the output of 3D video projection mapping.
