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

The Penbook:Projecting Paper

The Penbook combines pen paper and digital.It takes hand-written
input using a digital pen on real paper that is augmented with

Projectors Used in the Art of Dance

It is, of course, a very logical step--that is to combine dance and interactive media to completely alter perception and and communication. This blend, in my view only enriches art because by blending bodies and technology we create a hybrid entity that allows us to reach new heights for communicating ideas.

Interactive Music by way of Glockenspiel and Pico Projector

I am the first to admit that prior to viewing this video, I was completely ignorant as to the definition of Glockenspiel. But then a closer look made me realize that I'd seen one before, or at least something like it in a marching band at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.

Creative Projection readers will appreciate the kind of creativity required to enlist the services of a pico projector and develop this interactive musical experience

It's Like Google Docs...but Not

I guess if I were to describe the goals of this this paper computing technology it would appear to be less than a good thing because from what I can tell it has the goal of being a paper-based version of Google Docs. What's up with that? However, once you consider that it is meant for collaborating artists, it makes more sense.more

Interactive 3D Projection Mapping with Motion Capture

And the evolution of projection mapping continues..... NuFormer, a company located in the Netherlands uses what is being labeled MOCAP mapping or live motion capture combined with 3D video mapping. Utilizing such a mix they are able to engage viewers more than with projectors alone by allowing the audience to interact with a 3D character projected onto the building.
